    If you drag and drop a pivot table, it also creates a binding in the page definition.
    So, to not loose the correct behavior when regenerating, you need to move the pivot table tag to a custom template AND make sure the binding is also generated.

    Here is an example custom template that generates a graph with associated binding (same idea as pivot table):

    #macro (CUSTOM_BINDING)
    <graph IterBinding="Employees4Iterator" id="EmployeesView4"
    xmlns="" type="BAR_VERT_CLUST">
    <graphDataMap leafOnly="true">
    <item value="Salary"/>
    <item value="LastName"/>
    <dvt:barGraph id="barGraph1" shortDesc="Salary graph"
    <dvt:legendArea automaticPlacement="AP_NEVER"/>

    For more info, see the Jheadstart Developers Guide, section 12.7.2 Preserving Bindings Added Using a Drag-And-Drop Action.
