shrug-l: Cut&Paste Excel (2007) tables to ArcMap ...

I have run to a wall lately in trying to Cut&Paste Excel tables to ArcMap.  Specifically, I am talking about losing all or some of the format settings (e.g. cell borders, cell background color, etc.) of a table when the table is cut from Excell and then pasted to ArcMap.  I even tried to Cut&Paste the table to PowerPoint (also 2007) first to kind of convert the table to an "image object" before another Cut&Pasting  it to ArcMap. I do not remember it worked like that before 10.

Anything to share?  Thanks
