Oof, that really is the hard way to do this, particularly if you've done any work tweaking the table format (e.g. adjusting column widths) because all table formatting is lost.
The conventional way to do this is to use the Add Row or Column command to add an empty heading row, then to cut and paste the contents of each pseudo-heading cell to the corresponding true heading cell one at a time, then to select and delete the original pseudo-heading row. Yes, it's kind of a PITA. If you have to do this frequently (e.g. if you have a lot of tables that originated in Word, since the heading row property is not imported from Word into FrameMaker), you'd be well advised to buy Rick Quatro's excellent TableCleaner plug-in which (among quite a few other things) can individually convert a body row to a heading or footing row with a single command or can globally convert a specified number of body rows to heading rows for all tables of a particular format. TableCleaner is probably the single most useful plug-in I have in my toolbox, but that may just because much of my content originates in Word. My opinions only; I don't speak for Intel.

Gillian - there may be a slicker method, but one thing you can do is convert the table to text, then back into a table, specifying a heading row and making sure that 'leave heading rows empty' is not checked. -- Steve _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as fred.ridder at intel.com.
