Changing internal orders based on a top-level order

I have a prospect looking to plan for approximately 400 internal orders which are dependent and structured via an internal order group. There is a top-level internal order that impacts all other related internal orders. For example, if the dates for the highest level internal order changes (starts March 2003 other as opposed to January 2003), this affects the dates and related plan values for the top level internal order as well as all other related internal orders (e.g., 400 orders and up to 360 periods each). The primary question is whether or not we can automatically change all corresponding dates and related plan values for the volume of internal orders and periods required?

I would greatly appreciate your thoughts.
If you have a characteristic in your planning that specifies the relationship with top level internal and the relevant internal orders beneath you can populate the new date using a three step approach. First, read the top level internal order date and save is as a variable. In a loop for the specified internal orders, move the entries to a new version while passing the new date to this new entries as well. Secondly, delete the previous entries using a delete function. Thirdly, copy the generated data to the final version and this will be your revised data. If you assign all these functions to a planning sequence, you can use a button to do this as well.
