Use Code View. Copy & paste your entire code from <table> to </table>. Design view tends to miss things. Also, be sure to paste inside whichever parent div your first table occupies as this may indeed effect centering and other CSS styles.
Thanks Nancy O,
Yes that worked in code view. However, I really prefer working in design view. All the previous versions of Dreamweaver work fine when copying and pasting a table in design view. I've using Dreamweaver for years so I'm confused why Dreamweaver CC would be a step backwards not forward. Surely a simple copy and paste or ctrl+v should select a table and be able to duplicate exactly the same table without the width and height sizes changing. Any ideas Nancy or anyone else regarding copying and pasting using design view and not code view?

I always prefer Code View when copying and pasting page elements. It's far more precise.
I don't trust Design View for that. It's too prone to inaccuracies and error. It easily leaves stray HTML tags behind or other code fragments.
Use Split View. Select something in the Design pane and watch what DW highlights in your code panel.
I do 95% of my editing in Code View. I don't trust Design View and never have.
