Selecting and Formatting First Row of Every Table Within a Document

I am working with a large MS Word file (hundreds of pages).  It contains many, many tables.  I would like to select the first row of every table, make the font 8 point Times New Roman, and center the text within the first row.  I found a solution that accomplishes everything but center the text of the row.

This will set the horizontal alignment of all the cells in the first row of all the tables in the active document to Center.
Dim tbl As Table
Dim rw As Row
Dim cl As Cell

    For Each tbl In ActiveDocument.Tables
    
        Set rw = tbl.Rows(1)
        
        For Each cl In rw.Cells
            cl.Range.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = wdAlignParagraphCenter
        Next cl
        
    Next tbl

Open in new window


If you also want to set the vertical alignment you can add this to the loop.
            cl.VerticalAlignment = wdCellAlignVerticalCenter

Open in new window
