    Hello,

    I am having difficulty linking Excel data from a simple worksheet table to a table in Word 2007. I would like to retain all the formatting currently used in the Word table, but can't get the Paste Options working at all despite following all the advice on the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

    If I copy the Excel data and then place my cursor at the first cell location within the Word table where I want the information to be pasted I get different paste options compared to placing my cursor outside of the table.

    I am using the "Medium Grid 3 - Accent 3" Table Style in Word.

    I have attached a couple of simple files to demonstrate the formatting and content in both apps.
    '
    Step by step help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Thought I would try one more time to get this one resolved. Is what I am asking not possible to do?

    Cheers!

    Word wants to paste everything into that one cell, regardless of the table that exists.
    I don't have 2007 - onl 2003 - but you probably need to highlight all the cells that you will need for your data within the Word table (in the case of these files, it is a 7X3 set of cells) and then Edit, Paste Special, and select Unformatted Text. (Choosing Unformatted means the formatting already in Word is retained.)
