The Force is within you, Luke. :-) Go to the Tools menu, select Macro, and select
Record New Macro on that little sub-menu that pops up. In the Record Macro dialog
box, type a name for your macro (I think you can't have spaces or punctuation in
your macro name) and assign it to the Toolbar or Keyboard, if you like. If you don't
want to put it on the toolbar or keyboard (or don't know) just click OK.

Go ahead and format a table the way you want it, then click the Stop button on the
macro recorder toolbar. (The macro recorder toolbar looks like a tiny tape recorder
with only two controls--Stop and Pause.)

If you're reasonably familiar with Word, that should be enough to get you started.
If it's not enough, let me know.
