May I know if it is possible to clone an AutoFilter object in Excel 2010?

My purpose is this:

I have got a number of source data tables in 1 sheet.  I'd like to manipulate the data filtering in the source tables in code, copying the filtered results to other sheets.

At the end, I'd like to restore the AutoFilters originally set in the source tables.

Thanks,
Janice

I can only think of two real options (there is no simple cloning facility, sadly):
1. Copy the sheet and manipulate the copy of it.
2. You would have to loop through all the tables, loop through each filter in the table, check if it's on and if so, store the operator and both criteria values. Then after your manipulation is done, you would need to reverse this process.

option 1 is obviously simpler, if a bit clunky. Would it work for you?

I guess I will need 2.  At least I know I am not going to do something easy in an overly complex way.  Thanks!
