    Table cell shading/Text Format (Word 2K/SR-1)

    I suspect I may already know the answer to this, but I need to ask, in case someone knows of a quick solution. In Excel, you have conditional formatting for cells. What I am wondering is, without having to write some VBA, is there a simple way to do this for table cell entries in Word. What I would like to do is change the colour of text depending on what it is. The situation is that I have an Issue Log and want to assign priorities to each issue. If the Priority is high (H), medium (M) or Low (L) then I want the colour of the displayed text to change (H = red) , (M = blue) and (L = Green) or some similar colour scheme. Any insight anyone can provide is greatly appreciated. Thanks <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15>

    Would it be feasible to use the "Insert Microsoft Excel Worksheet" button to create the table? You can use conditional formatting then.
    Otherwise, you would need a macro, for AFAIK there is no conditional formatting of table cells in Word itself.

    Thanks Hans. I did think about that, but it is not feasible because of the way this Issue Log is set up. So I guess I need to look at what that macro might look like.
