Is row 10 now part of the table?
Yes. Pressing the TAB key adds the next row below the table to the table. Row 10 is now part of the sales rep table.

Drag the table
sizing handle to
the top of cell H12
to add another row
to the table
(Figure 5–16).
Why does row 11
have a different
background color
than row 10?
The quick style used
to create the table
includes a type of
formatting called
row banding. Row
banding causes adja-
cent rows to have
different formatting
so that each record
in the table is distin-
guished from
surrounding rows.
