Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Table and cell styles, part of InDesign CS3 Long Documents.
If you are new to table and cell styles they can be a bit hard to get your head around because you need to know that in order…for them to work as well as possible your paragraph styles need to be set up first because your paragraph styles are incorporated…into your cell styles and then your cell styles are incorporated into your table styles.…Once those two things are true, you can apply the table style to the table…and it will take on most of the formatting that you wish.…
I say most because Table and cell styles are not perfect and there is still going to be some leg work that you need to do…to get your table exactly the way you want it.…But it is going to be a big time saver to use them.…Let's take a look.…So I'm in a document called table in the Styles folder and the premise here is that once you have set up a table,…made it look the way you want it to look, you don't want to do a lot of repeat work.…You want to be able to choose another table that should look like this or replace the data and then just format it…
