There are some table macros on my site that allow you to scroll through the tables and apply the changes or skip to the next table. You could blend one of those with the actions in Tony's macro so that you can select the tables to be changed, if you need that option.

Is there a quick way to copy/paste table formatting in Word 2010 (Windows
7)?



"Gilbert, Brian" <BGILBER -at- transunion -dot- com>

Use a macro. Go to the table. Start the macro.



I like Brian's macro idea so much. I wrote one. To add this macro to your
document (or your Normal.dotm, preferred):

1. In Word, press ALT + F11 to open the VBA editor.
2. Right click Normal and select Insert > Module
3. Copy and paste this text into the window:

' Code snippet -- BEGIN
Sub TableSetup()
Dim tblTable As Table, iCount As Integer
For Each tblTable In ActiveDocument.Tables
With tblTable
.PreferredWidthType = wdPreferredWidthPercent
.PreferredWidth = 100
.Columns.PreferredWidthType = wdPreferredWidthPercent
.Columns(1).PreferredWidth = 17
.Columns(2).PreferredWidth = 83
.Rows(1).HeadingFormat = True
End With
iCount = iCount + 1
Next
MsgBox iCount & " tables updated"
End Sub
' Code snippet -- END

4. Open the document where the tables need to be adjusted.
5. With this document highlighted, press ALT + F8 to open the Macros dialog.
6. Select TableSetup and press Run. All the tables will be set the same.

You can add other properties to this macro to automate even more things. I
love VBA.
