Odd style in table?

    Hi!

    Someone emailed me a doc with a table, which happens to be a labe
    template.

    The style that exists in the original doc is "Normal + Left: 0.4 mm
    Right: 0.4 mm, After: 0 pt, Line spacing: single". The font i
    Calibri 8.

    What I'm ultimately doing is creating sequential labels. I type on
    label into the doc, copy that cell into the xls, then create all th
    other cells in sequence.

    When I paste in that info from Excel, the font is still Calibri 8 bu
    the style is "Normal + 8 pt". I've lost the original style. For my tex
    to fit in each cell for the labels, I really need "Normal + Left: 0.
    mm, Right: 0.4 mm, After: 0 pt, Line spacing: single".

    I don't know how to recreate that style with the newly filled table.

    After I explained all that to the creator of the doc, he this to say:
    . I do not have steps available that would immediately solve th
    issue but I will be happy to help.
    . Please send me the xls file you are using and I will be happy t
    try adjusting various settings
    . to see if I am able to get a favorable result.

    . One solution may be to recreate the template in your version of M
    Word then perform a mail
    . merge with the data file to bring all required information int
    the proper location. This may require
    . some additional information to be added to the data file t
    complete the mail merge successfully.

    While it's great that he's "happy to try adjusting various settings" i
    the xls, I'd rather simply changing the settings directly in the doc.

    Can anyone show me where the controls are so I can again have the doc b
    "Normal + Left: 0.4 mm, Right: 0.4 mm, After: 0 pt, Line spacing:
    single".

    Thanks so much

  2. That's not really a style; it's just "formatting." If you don't have the
    Styles pane showing formatting, you won't see it, but if you're not getting
    the formatting you want, then just apply it manually through the Paragraph
    dialog, adding 0.4mm left and right indents.
