Can the table and/or cell width be set by a style? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all;

    Ok, weird question of the day. w:tblPr/w:tblW and w:tcPr/w:tcW are both properties and therefore theoretically can be set by a style. Does this ever happen? And is it even allowed? Or are they always set explicitly?

    17.4.64/17.4.72 says if tblW/tcW is not explicitly set it's auto which leads to the conclusion that it cannot be overridden by the style.

    ??? - thanks - dave

  • Hi Dave,

    I remember that tblW and tcW are not actually allowed (by Word) as part of styles tblPr and tcPr per [MS-OI29500] 2.1.253 and 2.1.248. Word will complain about these, I've seen it before. Does that answer your question about defining these in styles part?
