Dear Experts,

can somebody help me re-write this code so that ...
... only tables get worked on where the 2nd and 3nd cell in the first row are blank, i.e. Cell(Row:=1;Column:=2) and Cell(Row:=1;Column:=3) are blank.

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

Regards, Andreas

Sub Format_First_Row_All_Tables

Dim tbl as table

For Each tbl In ActiveDocument.Tables
        With tbl.rows.First
            .Range.Font.Name = "Verdana"
            .Range.Font.Size = 7.5
            .Range.Font.Bold = True
            .Shading.BackgroundPatternColor = wdColorGray25
            .HeadingFormat = True
            .HeightRule = wdRowHeightAtLeast
            .Height = CentimetersToPoints(0.9)
        End With
 Next tbl

End Sub

I think the easiest way is to check the length of the cell ranges. The length of the range of an empty cell is 2.
Sub Format_First_Row_All_Tables()

Dim tbl As Table

For Each tbl In ActiveDocument.Tables
    If Len(tbl.Cell(1, 2).Range) + Len(tbl.Cell(1, 3).Range) = 4 Then
        With tbl.Rows.First
            .Range.Font.Name = "Verdana"
            .Range.Font.Size = 7.5
            .Range.Font.Bold = True
            .Shading.BackgroundPatternColor = wdColorGray25
            .HeadingFormat = True
            .HeightRule = wdRowHeightAtLeast
            .Height = CentimetersToPoints(0.9)
        End With
    End If
 Next tbl
