I tried to replicate the issue but found that the table style doesn't copied to the next style it is the cell style.....Can you check its the cell style or the table style which is getting copied.
Yes, you are correct it is the cell style that copys/pastes over, not the table style. How do copy/paste just the text from multiple cells and paste it into the other table (exact same number of rows/columns)?
I dont think there is a direct way,,,,
First of all you have to define the cell style , so say you have table 1 from where you have to copy the text and table 2 where you have to paste.
Go to Windows-->styles-->cell style , and define the different cell style for both the table.
Select the cells on the first table , copy the content and then Select the cells in the Second table and then paste,
This will move the content and the cell style together to the new table....now do not deselect the cells , go to cell style panel and choose the cell style you want to apply to these cells....you have to define the cell style first....
