Default what does *stylename mean?

Why do some style names have an asterisk pre-name? Also, I format
long docs and have a style for tables. This style doesn't seem "to
stick." I will format using the style and then the table will revert
back to no style. What would cause this? Thanks.

As far as I know, if a style name includes an asterisk it is because someone
named it like that (but I guess I could be wrong).

Also, I format long docs and have a style for tables. This style doesn't
seem "to stick." I will format using the style and then the table will
revert back to no style. What would cause this? Thanks.


What aspects of the style are not preserved? Borders, shading, text
formatting?

The table style has different shading for every other row including
top. This is mostly what goes "away."

Note that you can turn off certain aspects of table styles on the Table
Tools Design tab. For the affected tables, see if "Banded Rows" have been
cleared in the Table Style Options group.

I don't remember if the option was available in Word 2003. If you look in
Table | Table AutoFormat, what do you see there?

options to apply special format to row, columns, last row, last column

under the style table, modify, format there is an option for "stripes"
but it just lets you select the number of rows or columns in a band

In the Modify Style dialog box you should be able to choose which item to
"Apply formatting to"; for example, you can choose "Odd banded rows" and
then set the options (such as shading) for those rows.

Note that if you cannot get the options to stick, you could create an
example table with the desired formatting and then create an AutoText entry
which you can insert whenever you want that formatting.

Thanks Stefan for that. I never thought I could use Auto Entries for
inserting a new Table. Good idea. Thank you.

Well, if nothing else works, at least AutoText makes the task easier. Of
course, it doesn't help you *change* the formatting in a single step (as
styles do).
