I have a table that gets it's data from the web. This table is then linked to a PowerPoint as part of a report (i.e. use the paste special option and link the worksheet object). Once a month, the connection is refreshed, new data retrieved and a new report created. I want to include a 'previous report' table which shows the data from the previous month. At the moment, I open the old PowerPoint, screenshot the table and paste it in the new PowerPoint but I want to automate this like I do the other tables and graphs.

Is there a way, to automate copying the table, maybe to another sheet for example, so that it won't be affected when the original table is updated with new data. By copying, I don't mean simply copy as you would normally, as I would then have to then re-link/copy it to the PowerPoint. So is there a way to link the table (similar to how you would do =Sheet1!A1 to replicate the value in another cell) but control when the value updates so that it displays the old value when the connection is refreshed.

I have multiple sheets which get their data from the web so I don't want an answer along the lines of "just copy the query that gets the data and only update the one sheet, and don't update the copied table" because I click refresh all, so unless there's a quick way to choose which sheets to refresh and which to not, it's more effort to go through each one.

My aim here is to do no manual intervention - if I'm required to go and copy and paste something each month then I might as well stick to screenshotting the old table as I do.

Many Thanks!
