Windows 7: Help with standardizing existing muliple tables

Help with standardizing existing muliple tables

Have 1/2 dz Word 2003 rtf docs with multiple tables inserted. All tables have same # of columns but column width differs....and a differing number of rows.

How can I "auto-format" the existing tables so that they are all the same column width(s), and same overall table width/margins but keep the differing row numbers ?

Format Painter function will work only for text as a content, but not for table parameters. I am afraid you would have to do it semi-manual way.

1. To highlight first "model" table as a whole: position mouse inside the table, a small square should be displayed in the top-left corner of the table. Clicking on it will allow to highlight the whole table.

2. Now Right click in the table, select Table Properties.
Memorize or write down parameters from Table tab:
Preferred width, Indent from left.
And any other desired parameters from other tabs.

3.Now using advice from 1. start highlighting second table. To highlight third and other at the same time, hold CTRL key on your keyboard.
When all desired table will be highlighted you right click for Table Properties menu and set your parameters there.

By the way, 4th table on your screenshot has more columns than others (11 vs 10)!
