Can you copy a sheet and keep it's form refence in tact?



I was wondering if it possible to keep a form reference in place when copying (Save As New...) a sheet? We have a sheet connected to contact form that we want to leave in tact. I made a copy of it to work with for editing entries but it created a new form with it rather than staying connected to the old one. Is there something I am missing in the process that would keep it attached rather than create a new one?
