ArcGIS Online: Clone_items on standalone table

Hi, when running a simple clone_items script on an ArcGIS Online hosted table, I get the following error: 

"Failed to create Feature Service CobourgRoadsAnnualSummary: 'spatialReference'", None

This is correct, since my table doesn't have a spatial reference. Any ideas how to clone this item nevertheless...?
(also tried using arcgis online assistant, didn't work)

Hi Chaim,

The requirement for spatialReference appears baked in for Feature Services. One option would be to clone the data whence the hosted table was derived - e.g., if you uploaded an eExcel workbook as an item, you would end up with a 'Microsoft Excel' item and the hosted table. It is possible to clone a 'Microsoft Excel' item and then have the option to publish a Hosted table from the cloned item.
