    Formatting Table duplication

    I have three identical tables down the left-hand side of the page , and am trying to paste another identical three next to them.

    Whatever I do , they just won't paste or copy correctly. They lose their formatting every time. I'm hoping someone can put me out of my misery.

    The outcome should be 6 tables on the page , three on the left and three on the right , with a space between.

    Can someone advise? I'll attach a sample document.

    Grateful for any help.

    Re: Formatting Table duplication

    Go to the bottom of the page and press Enter to start a second page. Insert a new Table, three across by five deep. Adjust the column widths as necessary; I set them to 3.5, 0.3 and 3.5 respectively.

    Select one of your Tables and copy it. Now select the top left cell of the new Table and paste the original Table. Repeat the paste for top right, middle left, middle right, bottom left and bottom right. You should now have six copies of your original Table with blank rows and column separating them. Select the new Table and remove the borders.

    Fine tune as required.

    See the updated example.

    I've adjusted the alignment of the cells in your original Table. See if you like it.
