Automatic Table Formatting

Word provides a variety of predefined table formats. Using these formats makes it easy to apply attractive formatting to any table:

  1. Place the cursor anywhere in the table.

  2. Select Table, Table AutoFormat. The Table AutoFormat dialog box appears (see Figure 20.5). This is the same dialog box you see if you select AutoFormat in the Insert Table dialog box when first creating a table, as covered earlier in this lesson.

  3. In the Formats list select from the available table formats. As you scroll through the list, the Preview box shows the appearance of the highlighted format.

  4. Select and deselect the Formats to Apply check boxes as needed until the Preview shows the table appearance you want.

  5. To control whether special formatting is applied to certain parts of the table, select and deselect options in the Apply Special Format To section.

  6. Select OK. The selected formatting is applied to the table .

    Figure 20.5. You can assign predefined table formats in the Table AutoFormat dialog box.
