Default Pasting a table with combo boxes to a new document looses the combo box


I have created a Word document with a table. The table has a number of combo boxes. The idea is that a user part completes the table using the combo boxes, then pastes the table to a new document. A subsequent user then has to complete the remaining combo boxes.

The problem is that when the table is pasted to a new document, the options in the combo boxes are lost.

This may seem a bit silly but the table is a document lead sheet for a report. It is used to record author, date approved, how issued and so on. It is to be a bit like a factory job card, it records the inspection of the report as the report evolves.

If anyone knows how to preserve the options in the combo bax when it is pasted i would be grateful.

What kind of comboboxes (e.g. formfields, content controls, ActiveX controls, in a userform)?

Can you attach a document to a post with some representative data (delete anything sensitive)? You do this via the paperclip symbol on the 'Go Advanced' tab at the bottom of this screen.
