Word 2000 - Copying Tables from 1 doc to another

Post by nigelor » Tue, 09 Sep 2003 19:03:15


Help !! I'm trying to copy a table from 1 doc to another (both created
using Word 2000 ). When doing so it totally reformats table in the
target doc putting it into styles that are not used anywhere else in
doc, changing justifications, fonts, sizes, column widths and in such
a way I cannot reformat table to make it legible, although it does
seem to let me do individual cells but not ranges of cells. I've tried
going via a third (blank) document and it makes all the cells into a
Footer style & will not let me change back to Normal (or anything
else). I can't paste unformatted text as it pastes many rows from
source into 1 row in target. Tried going via Excel does the same. I've
tried everything I know & cannot do. It looks like the only option to
try is manually retype ( c100 rows ) & I do not want to do that. Never
had this problem with Word 97.

Anybody out there got any ideas ???
