Applying Shading and Borders
If you’re the do-it-yourself type, you can format a table yourself using the Shading
and Borders buttons in the Table Styles section of the Table Tools | Design tab (click
any table to see this tab). You can also use these buttons to change the look of a table
you’ve formatted using Table Styles.
Shading a Table
You can shade any part of a table—a cell, a row, a column, or multiples of these—to
call attention to it. You might want to set off the row that contains the column
headings from the table’s data, for example, or highlight a row or column that contains
totals. In a table you’re using as a calendar, you could use shading to highlight
important dates, like project due dates.
To add shading to a table, start by selecting the part of the table you want to shade.
(You can select multiple elements by holding down the Ctrl key as you make your
selections.) Then add shading using this method:
1. SelectTableTools|Design Shading(Alt,JT,H).
The Shading menu, shown in Figure 3-8, appears. This menu shows Theme
Colors, drawn from the theme (page 181) of your document; Standard Colors;
No Color (Alt, JT, H, N); and More Colors (Alt, JT, H, M), which opens a dialog
box that lets you choose from a wider range of colors. As you pass over the
possibilities, Live Preview shows how that color looks in your table.
