Issue

When you copy a sheet to another workbook, the parameter itself gets copied, but the values in that list don't. However, integer ranges or bool values, etc are preserved even when copied.

Workaround

1. (Optional) If there is no field with the parameter, Right-click on the parameter, Choose Create->Calculated Field, then hit OK.
2. Drag the field with the parameter to Detail on the Marks card.
3. If you copy/paste a sheet after that, the value list should be preserved.
*If a field with a parameter is not used on the sheet, the value in the list of parameters is lost.
