    Table formatting (Word) (WinXP/O2003)

    Hi,

    Here's another one.../ grin

    Say I've got a big nearly full page table in Excel, that I want to copy into Word.
    - my preference is to have the Table as a Word table and formatted with Word styles as these has more settings than their Excel equivalent

    Now, say the table has at the top 2 header rows, then a body part, additionally another "header like row" and then again some more body (and this could go on...).

    Is there a way where I can detect for instance the Bold format already at the clipboard?
    - by this I'm thinking that if I can detect the Bold format at the clipboard, then I'll know when to apply my header row style and if no bold I'll apply the Body style...

    Question is simplified a bit , but it's more the principle, whether this is actually possible or just a no-no / ;o)

    Potentially I guess I could also paste it in as RTF, loop through each cell and format these accordingly.... hmmm - may actually be the simplest way to do it?
    Bests,
    RD


    PS: Wish there were a knob on the TV to turn up the intelligence. There's a knob called "brightness," but that doesn't work

    You'll have to paste first, then examine the result. You can't apply Word styles to the contents of the clipboard.

    Question was probably a bit unclear...

    - please disregard it for the time being, my hands probably ran faster than my brain on this... <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39>

    Sorry
