Pasting data into a PowerPoint table without source formatting?

PowerPoint How To  

We’ve been working hard at PPT Productivity to bring you new and improved features to help you create great slides in PowerPoint! Over the coming weeks we’ll highlight some of our favorites.

You can paste data directly from Excel (or web page, CSV, or tab separated) without changing your table format in PowerPoint. By default, PowerPoint overwrites table formats when you paste table data from Excel (or other sources). Our new feature allows you retain your table format when pasting the data into your slide. 

Paste the data directly into a pre-existing table on your slide and keep the table format intact, or paste onto a blank slide and your pasted table style will be inherited from the format set by your slide’s template in PowerPoint.

Here’s a short video of this function in action
