It works fine for me in Wrod 2007. Every shaded cell is completely filled.

Are you sure you are applying the shading to the table row and not to the paragraph format (which can also have shading and borders, possibly in conflict with table shading and borders)?

When I apply shading to the table style it leaves a strip of white above and below the text in the table cell where the shading is supposed to be applied.

In other words, it is shading my text, but not the entire table cell. I need the entire cell to be shaded.

If you define new table styles that use your custom color for the top row shading, then all your users need to do is choose the right table style to get the right shading color. I won't attempt to tell you how to define a new table style, though, because I'm still on Word 2007 and I can't be sure this wasn't one of the GUI changes between the two versions.

Another approach is to define a new, custom theme that include whatever custom colors you want. Then you will see the theme colors and 5 lighter and darker shades of those colors in any color picker panel.

> I am creating a template in Word 2010. I want to apply a specific colour of shading to the top cells in our tables (RGB 195, 233, 245).

> Once I apply the shading to the cell, the colour appears in the paint can drop down menu, making it very easy to re-create the shading by clicking the paint can colour. However, when I close the document and open it again, the custom colour that was created gets removed from the paint can drop down. For end users, this would mean they have to enter the specific colour code to get the proper shading, which absolutely will not fly in my company. If we use coloured shading, there needs to be an easy way for users to re-create it...
