Paste data into PowerPoint and apply destination table format


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.  By default, PowerPoint overwrites table formats when you paste table data from Excel.

This 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 your copied data directly into your existing PowerPoint table.  Only the data will be pasted - the source formatting will not be applied.  If your existing table in PowerPoint was not big enough to accommodate the pasted data, new rows and columns will be added automatically.
