Version 1.91 copy and pasting (I know I'm not supposed to!)

I have a multi-round survey as part of my dissertation research. My university updated to 1.91 without giving us warning. In previous rounds of the survey I made a table in word that I copy and pasted into a Limesurvey Array question. Yes I know all the forums say copy and pasting causes problems, but for me the tables held their formatting. Between rounds I have a word document with the 165 tables that I update with new descriptive statistics/frequencies and then copy and paste into the next round of the survey. Since my university updated the LimeSurvey version the formatting of my table is stripped away.

See attached for a file with screenshots of the difference in formatting - mainly background color of header row as well as border outlines.

Any suggestions of how to override the upgrade or format the copy and paste. I know I can recreate all the tables, but really don't want to spend days doing such...

Use OpenOffice/LibreOffice because it will give you clean HTML.
