Can Nintex Workflow use the copy item action to copy a list item into the same list (in essence creating a duplicate with a new list ID)?

I am creating a workflow that rolls items in a quarter forward to the next quarter. It is meant to copy the items into the same list but with a new value in the quarter field. Everything works up until the copy action.

 

The error I get, surprisingly is: The workflow could not copy the item. Make sure the source and destination lists have the same columns and column settings. Hmm--same list, why this error?

 

Generally speaking, can Nintex Workflow use the copy item action to copy a list item into the same list (in essence creating a duplicate with a new list ID)? If not, what's the best approach?
