Modifying Header, Footer, and Body Rows of a Table

In addition to modifying the appearance of an entire table, you can modify portions of a table, such as the header row, the footer row, and rows within the body of the table. To modify the appearance of a section of a table, you need to correctly define the parts of the table in your source documents. For example, in Microsoft Word, you need set the table property to define the header row. If you do not create a header row for a table in your source document, you cannot modify the header row appearance in your output. The first row of a table is not, by default, a header row.

To define the appearance of the header rows, specify the appropriate values for the Header and Header background properties for your table styles. These property values override the values specified for the Table, Border, and Background properties.

To define the appearance of the body rows, specify the appropriate values for the Body and Body background properties for your table styles. These property values override the values specified for the Table, Border, and Background properties.

To define the appearance of the footer rows, specify the appropriate values for the Footer and Footer background properties for your table styles. These property values override the values specified for the Table, Border, and Background properties.

Tables created in Microsoft Word do not identify footer rows. To control footer rows with Microsoft Word and ePublisher, set up your table in your source document to reflect the desired appearance, or use footer paragraph styles in the footer row of the table. Then, ePublisher can use the table set up from your source document and you can use the footer paragraph styles to modify the appearance as needed.

Tables created in Adobe FrameMaker identify the footer rows of tables, which allows you to specify the Footer and Footer background properties to modify footer rows for online delivery.
