How to paste data to PowerPoint destination table format?

Getting Started  

How can I Paste data into PowerPoint and automatically apply the destination table format?

PPT Productivity enables you to paste data from Excel (or other sources) and retain the table formatting set by either your PowerPoint slide’s template design or a table you have created on the destination slide.  We created this feature because by default, PowerPoint overwrites table formats when you paste table data from Excel (which ruins your formatting).

The Paste data from Excel to PowerPoint feature works for either the template aligned table style or a table created on the destination slide (for example if you insert a table format on a slide which is different to your template’s standard format). You can paste copied data directly into your PowerPoint table.  When you use this feature, only the copied data will be pasted - Excel source formatting will not be applied. 

Further - if your existing table in PowerPoint was not big enough to accommodate the pasted data, the Paste data from Excel to PowerPoint feature will add new rows and columns automatically.
