Table styles changing with pasted table

    I have a document with four custom table styles. When I paste a tabl
    from another document into it, when I click on the table, my custo
    table styles change (they lose the colour header). If I click on one o
    my existing tables, they're fine though.

    Any idea what's going on and how to fix it? Thanks!

    Andre

    Colors may be inherited from the document theme, which explains why they
    change in a new setting. When pasting, have you tried the Paste Options
    button?

    Afterwards, the best you can do is change the colors manually (or perhaps
    use a macro, if there are many tables being affected).
