I need to change the left indent value for all tables in several very large documents.

Find/Replace with a specified indent value does not appear to act on tables.

These are legacy documents created before table styles were used.

Can anyone suggest a method that will allow me to find all tables with a certain indent value, and change it?

Alternatively, is there a way to find all tables and apply a table style to them?

A style is used for the text within the tables, which helps me find the tables I need to change, but doesn't help as far as changing the left indent of the table.
