How do I copy a horizontal ruler in Word?

I just need to copy text in a document to another part of the same document, 
including the ruler format, so I don't have to reset the ruler every time.  
Surely there's a way, but I've searched for hours trying to find it.  In 
earlier versions of Word, we could just hold down the shift or control key, I 
don't remember which.

If by "ruler format" you mean the margin and tab settings, the ruler
shows the ones applied to whichever paragraph the cursor happens to be
in. You duplicate them by assigning the same paragraph style in each
place.

As Peter suggests, formatting with a style is the best way, but you can copy 
and paste formatting using Ctrl+Shift+C and Ctrl+Shift+V.

Embedded word doc changed to image-need to change back to word.

AutoFormat not working in Word 2007 in Windows 7
I have just installed the Office 2007 suite on Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit edition.

clipboard copy doesn't work
(USING OFFICE XP: EXCEL) I have a string that is more than 255 characters long in Excel so it gets displayed as bunch of pound signs (#). That is ok, but when I select that cell and copy (Ctrl + C), all the pound signs get copied to the clipboard. It also writes out all the pound signs when i save the file in a text format (like .csv, comma-delimited).
