I am trying to automate (vie VBA) copying some Excel tables into a Word document at specific bookmarked locations. The following is a code snippet:

    'this should copy the Excel table to the clipboard
     Range(strRangeName).Copy    

     'this should paste the  clipboard into the word document
     wrdrngBookMark.PasteAndFormat Type:=wdFormatOriginalFormatting  

I am successfully copying charts across with the folowing:
            ActiveChart.ChartArea.Copy
            wrdrngBookMark.PasteAndFormat Type:=wdChartPicture

Please what am I doing wrong with the tables??

This solution only worked a couple of times (out of many tries). PasteSpecial appears to work all the time.

Any ideas why PasteExcelTable is unreliable?
