It might get screwed up if the margins, page orientation and other 
page formatting settings on the two documents are different.  Check 
"Page Setup" from the File menu for both docs.

Proper way to copy a table:
1. Highligh a column/row from the table
2. From the Table menu, scroll to Select >> Table
3. Copy and paste, as normal

If it still looks wrong, you may need to experiment with the "Paste 
Special" options in Word.
