If you make tables, listen up

If you have ever tried to craft a table, whether a tabbed list or an actual table that comprises rows and columns of cells, you know it takes some effort. Fortunately, you table makers are in luck. New to InDesign CS3 is the ability to save cell and table styles, which like other style sheets we've seen, can spare you ages of repetitive and tedious work. Note that I mentioned two kinds of style sheets, Cell Styles, which effect individual cells, those row column intersections, and Table Styles which effect entire tables.

Cell Styles get nested inside Table Styles, so it makes the most sense to create the Cell Styles first and then wrap them into an overarching Table Style. In the following exercises, we will do precisely that. Along the way, I will show you how to use these style sheets to refine the formatting of one table and transfer that formatting goodness to another table. If you are like me, you will be flat out amazed by what you can automate, and what you can't.
