Our program generate a word document which user may or may not make modification to it. Within this documentation, there’s a table. And our user wanted to add an additional column to the table generated.
On adding a new column, the bottom padding’s shading on the new column does not seem to be the same as the adjacent column (I was expecting the cell shading to be fill for the entire cell).
Attached is a further document showing the original table, and inserted column table. Please note the second table’s third column’s bottom padding region doesn’t behave the same as adjacent columns.
Newly Copied column's bottom padding does not follow adjacent column shadding
Thank you for reporting this problem to us. I managed to reproduce this problem with MS Word 2003. Your request has been linked to the appropriate issue. You will be notified as soon as it is resolved.
Also, note, the problem does not occur in MS Word 2007.
Thanks for your prompt respond as always and I’ll notify our vendor that this error doesn’t exists in Word 2007.
By the way Alexey,
Is there any way that user can resolve this in word 2003? Ie. steps or settings in word that will fill the newly copied column background color?
Or any workaround that will have the newly copied column shading to be consistent with adjacent column?
Thanks for your request. As a workaround, you can try do not set top and bottom paddings.
