Default Table style of pasted table


I have a word template that contains a table style that I have created ('CompanyTable').

I have made it the default table style so that all tables created in the document use that style.

However, when I paste a table from another document, even with 'Use Destination Styles', the table doesn't inherit the default table style. I can see that this is because the table style of the copied table (TableGrid) also exists in my template. Since I can't control the source style of copied tables, what is the best way of dealing with this? Do I need to delete all other table styles in my template? Or just make sure all users know how to apply the custom style for pasted tables?

The 'Use Destination Styles' setting only affects content that is pasted using a Style of the same name; it doesn't apply a different Style name from the one in the source. Accordingly, you should either re-define the TableGrid Style to perform the same as your CompanyTable Style (not recommended) or apply your CompanyTable Style to the table after pasting.
