How to copy/paste the *formatting* of a table in Powerpoint


I'm wondering if there's a feature in ppt 2010 to paste the formatting of one table onto another (e.g. table borders, cell background colour). I've tried all the paste specials but nothing seems to work.

It would seem really strange to me if this feature doesn't exist (you can paste formatting of other objects easily), so does anybody know how to do this?

As far as I know, what you are asking for is not possible.

If all your tables are to have the same style, you could create a presentation template that has this one style as default table style.

Another option is to copy the table out of PowerPoint into some other Office application such as Word or Excel that is more flexible, then copy it back.
