    Wow, Hans!

    Thanks so much for the promptness of the response.

    The Borders & Shading menu does have a Shadow option but, as I say, it seems to be 'active' only when one cell is selected....

    Have a good evening.

    As far as I know, Word doesn't have shadow effects for tables. It has shadow as a font or paragraph property, and shadow for drawing objects. You can simulate a shadow effect for a table to a certain extent by selecting the table as a whole, and experimenting with Format | Borders and Shading..., or by putting the table in a text box, and applying a shadow effect to the text box.

    I am using Word 2002; it doesn't display the Shadow option in the Borders and Shading dialog if you select a table, only if you select a cell, and then the effect is underwhelming...

    Hans -

    Apparently it's the same in Word97. Only a cell.

    Many thanks for your time.
