Default Cannot shade a cell in a table

Hi Colleen

Try some diagnostic steps to see if there is corruption in your document, or
in the table.

Do you have the same problems if you...
1. create a new table in this document?
2. copy this table within this document?
3. copy this table to another document?
4. copy everything in this document *except* the last paragraph mark to a
new document?

The following might help, too:
How can I recover a corrupt document or template - and why did
it become corrupt?

Hope this helps.

I have a word document which has a table in it, some cells
are shaded. When I saved the original document with a new
name I cannot shade any of the cells correctly. The
shading appears at the very edge of the cells. I have
tested this on a blank document and the shading works as
normal ie. the whole cell is shaded.

Does anyone know how I can fix this? Any info would be
greatly appreciated. thanks CR

Hi Colleen,

I have a word document which has a table in it, some cells
are shaded. When I saved the original document with a new
name I cannot shade any of the cells correctly. The
shading appears at the very edge of the cells. I have
tested this on a blank document and the shading works as
normal ie. the whole cell is shaded.

It sounds as if the structure of the table may be damaged. If
you
- Select the table
- Table/Convert table to text
- immediately: Table/Convert text to table

Does this problem go away?

You might also check to make sure that there isn't some other shading
applied to the text itself.
