    Tables and Styles (Word 2002)

    Is there any way to create a table style that has different border styles for the columns and actual width measurements for each of the columns?

    I would like to create a 2 col by 1 row Table style that has different borders for the columns. The first column will have no borders on the left, top and bottom border and the second column will have an outline border. The first col width is to be 2 cm and the second col 10.8cm. The text contained within each cell will have paragraph styles applied.

    I look forward to a response.

    Regards

    Jocelyn

    Re: Tables and Styles (Word 2002)

    When modifying a table style, you can specify borders, but not column widths (or row heights). You can specify whether you want to apply formatting to the left column or to the right column, so you can create a table style that has no border for the first column and an outline border for the last column. But column widths will not be part of the table style.

    I don't use Table Styles yet (even though I have Word 2002). I tend to create a table I like and save it as AutoText. Then I can re-use it whenever I need it.

    Thanks for your assistance. I suppose this feature for column widths will come in future versions!

    Hello Jefferson,

    Thanks so much for this recommendation, the Auto Text worked a dream. So much easier and quicker to implement than Styles, particularly the very basic Table Styles.

    Regards,

    Jocelyn
