Any formatting you apply to data in Microsoft Query will be lost when you copy this data to the Clipboard.

This is by design.

You can use Microsoft Query, an application included with Microsoft Excel, to retrieve, view, and organize data from a variety of sources. Microsoft Query is not a database application; it is a database "front-end" used to view data from various sources. If you want to bring data from Microsoft Query into Microsoft Excel, you will have to reformat the retrieved data from within Microsoft Excel.
