Default Can I turn off a template (or style) for part of a document?

I'm putting together a big report in Word, using Elegant Report
style/template. There is one section of the document that I'm incorporating
that was created entirely without that Elegant format. I cut and pasted it in
and, oh LORD, what a mess.

It seems as though I should be able to turn off the Elegant Report for one
section.

Any hints?

Your kind help is much appreciated.

Elegant Report is the name of the template (the file that supplied the
styles to start the document) -- it isn't something that "turns off".

The cause of the problem is probably that the document you copied the
material from had styles with the same names but with different definitions
than the ones in the report document. The article at

what happens. You want the method explained in the last paragraph -- use
Paste Special Unformatted Text to paste the material into your document.
