Paste Special - Match Destination Formatting

I'm a grant writer, and I frequently export data from a grants tracking database into Excel. I have to reformat the sheet so that I can share the report with colleagues. I don't want to have to reformat the data each time I export. I set up a template, which has the headers I want for each column, and I formatted the cells which will contain numbers to a specific accounting format (no dollar sign and 0 decimal places), and in another column, I formatted the cells to present data as a percentage instead of decimal. When I cut and paste from the exported file to the template, it uses the source formatting. I want to match the destination formatting, but that option isn't included in Paste Special if I right click in the template file. I put the Match Destination Formatting icon into the Quick Access bar, but it is greyed when I try to paste, so I can't use it. The icon is active when I first open Excel, it greys out when I select cut. I've attached a file with two tabs - the exported data and the template. Any ideas of how to move the exported data into the template and match the destination formatting?  Thanks!
