    I have a Word document with several tables in it.

    In each table there are lines of text.

    In the first table I have set specific tabs and paragraph formats to those lines of text.

    I want to apply those same tab settings to the text in the other tables.

    How can i do that without having to move to each table and set the tabs individually?

    Is there any way of copying tab settings from one table to the others?


    thanks:D

    Does Format Paster not work? (the "paintbrush" button on the toolbar)

    Works fine here. Highlight the area in one table, press the toolbar button, higlight the area in the other table and format is copied when you release the mouse button.

    Just to add to kiwiguy, if you want to copy the format selectively (eg: to discontiguous cells), select the cell with the required format then doubleclick the Format Painter button. It'll stay on until you click it off again.
