You need a third-party plug-in for that. It's Woodwing Software's SmartStyles. It's great for re-using tables and also for formatting text frames. For instance, you might want paragraph 1 to be in one style, the next using another style, etc. You can save that style and apply it to other text frames. Works like a Library.
