Hi :)
Did you let us know which Operating System?  Is it Windows 7?  or could you
let us know just the platform, such as Windows, Linux, Mac or BSD?

Yes, this is no good as a long-term solution to your particular
requirements - but it might be a good temporary work-around for right now
giving you time to look into other ways of doing the job.

Just a bit of brain-storming ...
*  Would Base's Forms or Reports be a better way of doing this?
*  How about using html?
*  If there is not much text between tables then Calc might be useful and
much simpler.
*  Might it be possible to work on the xml inside the .Odt container
format?  [1]
*  In CV Alkan's answer does Ctrl x (or other way of doing a "Cut") have
the same effect and can the contents of the table then be pasted into a new
table without altering it's layout?
*  Again, could Frank's method be adapted using Ctrl Shift v (or other way
of doing "paste special") to paste and does that neatly replace the
original table with the new layout?

[1] You know that if you rename the file-ending from .odt to .zip then you
can open it as a zip-file.  Inside there are some folders and xml files and
things.  Of course it is usually best to create a copy of the original file
and do the renaming and other work on the back-up jic something goes wrong
while you experiment with it.

Tom :)

Hi Frank,

That’s interesting and useful but this is a dynamic document.  Tables may
have  to be changed frequently without deleting content.

Thanks for the reply,

Hi -

The way I do this is to simply copy the table I want to mimic. Table |
Select | Table | Ctrl+C

Then paste it at the location I want. Ctrl+V

Then select the pasted table. Table | Select | Table

Then press the Delete key. You might think this would delete the table,
but it just deletes the contents, leaving styles, backgrounds, borders and
things all the same. It will also keep the repeat rows for header property
as well.

For tables that will repeat a lot, thia is much easier. It would be nice
to have table styles, but I personally would rather have the developers
working on the serious regression bugs that exist.

I hope this makes life a little easier.
