Shading in table



Hi, I "inherited" a table that has light blue shading on every other row. I
wanted to remove the shading. I tried everything inside the Table
properties/border & shading, fill, highlight, Format/borders shading,
absolutely nothing worked. I had reveal formatting on and it showed the
properties of cell and paragraph to be clear (even though it wasn't).

In desperation I converted the table to text. At that point, I could remove
the shading using Format/Borders & Shading.

Was there any other way to remove the shading from the table? Anyway, maybe
this post will help someone else. This is in Word 2003.

Try changing the table style to Table Normal (or just modify the current
table style not to have alternate row shading).
