• Create a Datapilot on a new worksheet
• Right click that worksheet's tab, then click on "Move/Copy Sheet"
• Tick the "Copy" checkbox in the next window, and change the "Insert Before" 
to read  "- move to end position -"
• The resulting copy contains grey Datapilot buttons, but they don't do 

The copied Datapilot is static and non-functional.

Hi Bettina,

as we never have done this, I re-flag this as request for enhancement. 

As Excel leaves the datapilot in working condition on the copied sheet, we
should do it in the same way just for user convenience on a possible migration.

I don't see why this is not seen as a bug, but as an enhancement?

I can understand why selecting a datapilot, then copy-paste it, and have a
functional data pilot again, is an enhancement and not a bug, since it was
originaly not intended to do so..the copied datapilot also doesn't look like a
real datapilot anymore: there are no grey buttons anymore.

But when copying a whole worksheet using the Move/Copy worksheet method, it
looks to me, and probably any end-user as normal behaviour that the resulting
copied worksheet, is identical to the original worksheet. And thus this should
be considered as a bug, since the copied worksheet is not identical anymore,
because the datapilot, which btw still looks like a functional datapilot, is
"broken" on the copy.
This was never done before, can in this case also be seen as: this is a bug that
has always been there.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
