Function MakeEventFromEvent()
	Dim objSourceEvent
	Dim objNewEvent

	Set objSourceEvent = ScriptContext.Event
	Set objNewEvent = ScriptContext.CreateEvent()

	objNewEvent.LoggingDomain = "DOMAIN1"

	objNewEvent.UTCTime = objSourceEvent.UTCTime
	objNewEvent.UserName = objSourceEvent.UserName
	objNewEvent.SourceComputer = objSourceEvent.SourceComputer
	objNewEvent.Message = objSourceEvent.Message
	objNewEvent.MessageDLL = objSourceEvent.MessageDLL
	objNewEvent.LoggingComputer = objSourceEvent.LoggingComputer

	Set objSourceEvent = Nothing
