Colour Changes - Illustrator to InDesign - Adobe Indesign Windows

CS1 Windows XP pro. Problem. I have an Illustrator file of a logo in two pantone colours. PMS8401 and PMS 208. When I select all in Illustrator and copy paste that logo into InDesign the PMS colours show as CMYK process colours in the swatch of InDesign. This job has to be printed in spot colour so any help would be appreciated. I have also posted this message in the Illustrator forum....

    Have you tried placing the Illustrator file instead of pasting it?

    Make sure that those colors are specified as spot in Illustrator.

    Even though the PMS colors change to CMYK values when placed, you can go into the color palette in INDD and change the swatch from process to spot and reverse if needed.
