Hello,
below macro applies a custom paragraph style from the second row to the last row of a selected table. Can this code be improved, e.g. by not using the  selection object when setting the range?
Help is appreciated. Thank  you very much in advance.

Sub ApplyStyleSecondToLastRow()
Selection.Tables(1).Select
Selection.SetRange _
        Start:=Selection.Rows(2).Range.Start, _
        End:=Selection.End
                 Selection.Style = "custom paragraph style"
End Sub

Hello,
found out myself. I guess this is the best way forward:

Sub ApplyStyleSecondToLastRow()
Dim tbl As Word.Table
Dim row As Word.row
Dim rng As Word.Range

   Set tbl = ActiveDocument.Tables(1)
   Set rng = tbl.Range

   For Each row In tbl.Rows
   rng.SetRange tbl.Rows(2).Range.Start, tbl.Rows.Last.Range.End
   
      rng.Style = "Dipl_Tbl_TK"
   Next row
End Sub
