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
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? 
* 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?
 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.

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,

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
I hope this makes life a little easier.
