Trying to make a task to copy and paste a feature

I am trying to make some tasks in the Task Designer. One step I can't seem to get past is I need to copy a selected point feature (GPSstructure) and copy it to another point feature dataset (an archive named GPSdone).  In Desktop I normally would just select the feature then right-click "Copy" and right-click "Paste". The menu would ask me which feature dataset to paste into and I was done.  I was trying to automate this with tasks but I keep getting an "Error: Cannot run command assigned to the step.  It is not enabled."  I have tried various versions of copy and paste with no success.  I used the record steps function and that appeared to record the steps (which did work manually) but did not work when the task was run.  Any ideas?
