duplicateMovieClip help!

I’m creating an application that allows the visitor to layout furniture on a floorplan. I’m creating the duplicates when the panel with the furniture loads (there’s 6 panels).Is there a way to have the duplicates be on a different path than the original? The way the panels are designed to work, they move up and down to reveal other furniture options. Because the duplicates are on a specific panel with a specific path, the furniture on the floorplan moves up and down as the panel does.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
