Apply a Style to a Table in PowerPoint 2007

After you’ve created a table on a PowerPoint slide, use the controls under Table Tools on the PowerPoint Ribbon to format it. PowerPoint offers several predefined table styles. Before you apply a style, however, use the check boxes that appear at the left side of the Design tab under Table Tools on the Ribbon.

  • First Column: Indicates whether the style should format the first column differently than the other column in the table

After you set the Quick Style options, apply a Table Style to the table by clicking the style you want to apply.
