Copy and paste works, although for some pages it won't do it in "view" mode - if you copy the content while in Edit mode it will take an identical copy (although only with one section at a time)

Or, you could use the include or include-excerpt macros to avoid having to maintain the data in two places.

do i just have to mark the table whcih is content of the page..as I do ti in Excel ? It did not work at first try......seemed rare later on while pasting....seemed to paste a file...

ahh now it works Thanks !!!!!!

New topic process for how to "replicate" the content of one page to another page:

Step one: 
Create new page (parent page for source content). Note the TITLE of this page.
Step two:
Create a new page, choose the "blank page" template, and then title it the same as or other than the title used for the parent page.
Step three:
In the body of the new page, insert the "Include page" macro. For the page you want to include, simply paste in the TITLE of the parent page, and then save the page. 
Now the second page will always contain the source content on the parent page.
TIP: you can also use the Include page macro to insert a page's content into a section of a page. For ex., I use it in a section of an guide's landing page to show a revision history table that's maintained on its own, separate page.

You could always use the Include Page macro that comes free with Confluence.

Here are instructions how to use it:

Hello All, We tried using this Include macro. But the problem is it expects view permission of the target page similar to that of source page.

Our situation is that we want to share selective content from a space to our contractors space and giving view permission as that of source is not possible

Yes, that's correct, if a person has permission to see something, they can see it.  If they do not have the permission to see it, then they can't see it.

You need to restructure your pages so that the pages you want to share are in a space visible to contractors (and included in internal spaces if they need to be duplicated there)
