If the target work item is a new one. The easiest way will be create a work item template from the source work item and the create a new work item based on the template.

Hi Donald,
Thanks for response.
In my case work item is existing one.

In this case, you can try to use the CSV export/import feature. Basically, export the source work item with the attributes of interest to a CSV file, then change the work item ID to the target work item and import back. The result will be that the target work item is updated with the values from the source work item.
