Hi Rick 
 Reminder:  FM 7.0 on Vista Enterprise.   Acrobat Distiller 5.0.

Thank you for these instructions, changing the colors of the rows worked great! 
However, I need to keep the left column solid, a darker shade of the rows.

Hi Sue,

The table was probably imported into FrameMaker from Word and so the
alternating shading are considered overrides to the default table shading.
Here is how to fix it:

1) Select the entire table.
2) Choose Table > Custom Ruling and Shading
3) Uncheck the Custom Cell Ruling checkbox and check the Custom Cell Shading
4) Choose From Table under both Fill and Color popup menus.
5) Click the Apply button.

This will remove the overrides from the table. Now you can set the
alternating shading in the Table Designer and it should work as you add and
delete rows. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. Thank
you very much.

Hi All,
   Using FMKR 7.0,  Acrobat Distiller 5.0,  on Vista Enterprise on HP
(Compaq) laptop.
  I do not have the full Acrobat 5.0 program, on this system.  But, I could
take the FMKR file to my own pc and use Acrobat 5.0 and then bring it back
to this laptop.


 I have a large (17pgs) table for my glossary.

The rows are alternating colors - light and medium shade of the same color.
However, the header top row and the left column - are a solid color.

Now, we are adding and deleting some of these glossary entries.

Is there a way to have the alternate row colors update automatically?
I have already gone into the Table Designer and I am working with the shade
settings, but not much luck yet.

I inherited this table - I think the alternate coloring was done with copy /
