Default Creating a new Table template based on existing table

I'm wondering if there is a way for me to create a new table template based on the table in the attached document.

Basicly what i want to do is just be able to select some text and convert it to a table that looks exacly like the one in the attached document.

I know that i can save it as a quick table but that is with all the text already thre and is doesn't allow me to wrap the existing text into the new format.



I also know that i can create new templates to look like the existing one but that takes forever and doesn't allow me to have seperate colors in the top row, except for the right most and left most colums.

Any help on this would be greatly appriciated.

Your table has merged columns and merged rows, which makes it impossible to simply drop the text into it.

It might be possible to create a macro that would process a specific block of text to adapt to such a table by looping through the cells collection of the table range and writing the required parts of your 'text' to the relevant cell, but it is not going to work with any old block of text.
