In the Webinar – Using Microsoft Project to Provide Pragmatic Monthly Reports (7/22/10 Ben Howard) Ben simply highlighted items in the Project view, copied and pasted into Word. The result was in table form with the column headings. Using Project 2007 my results are not in table form or with column headings. Is this a Project 2010 update? Does he have his Word document formatted for this? Or am I doing it incorrectly?
Project 2010 does tend to handle copy / past better than 2007, but it may also be the meothd you are using. Try selecting the range of cells instead of the entire row(s). Depending on the version of Word you are using, you can also try the Paste Special options. And, depending on how the paste looks, you can use Convert Text to Table.
