Apply a user-defined style to certain cells of each and every table using VBA

Dear Experts:

My current document has dozens of tables.

I would like ...
... to apply the user-defined style 'MyTitle' to the third cell of the second row for all tables using VBA.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Hi Andreas.

Try for example:

Sub myStyle()
Dim tbl As Table
Dim doc As Document

    Set doc = ActiveDocument
    For Each tbl In doc.Tables
        tbl.Rows(2).Cells(3).Range.Style = doc.Styles("MyTitle")
End Sub

Open in new window

I have assumed the style exists in the document itself but you can play with that easily enough so the above will hopefuly work for the purpose on the active document
