WD 176 Word Chapter 3 Creating a Cover Letter and a Resume
To Apply a Table Style
The next step is to apply a table style to the table. Word provides a Table Styles gallery, allowing you to
change the basic table format to a more visually appealing style. Word provides a gallery of more than 90 table
styles, which include a variety of colors and shading. In this project, you do not want the heading rows or alternating
rows to use a different format; that is, you want the formatting applied to the rows in the table to be the same. The
following steps apply a table style to the table in the cover letter.
