Other pages on this site related to WordPerfect tables:
• Using WordPerfect tables (many tips and links)
• Table gridlines, table borders, table guidelines - what they do and how they work. Why you might not see borders around cells on your screen, or see "reverse text" (white text on a dark cell background) in a table, etc.
• Rotate table cell contents either 90, 180, or 270 degrees (or "skew" the contents at an angle).
• Brackets - A macro that creates an "outdented" table -- i.e., a table that extends slightly outside page margins -- with a large, full-height left and/or right border that simulates a large square bracket ("[" and/or "]"); the result can also be "indented"
• Calendars - Macros to create monthly or annual calendars using tables
• DeleteRC - Deletes empty rows and/or columns in the current table
• QwikFill - A macro that adds incrementing numbers (1..n) in the current table column from the current cell to the bottom of the column, in a manner similar to WordPerfect's QuickFill feature -- but easier and with more options
• RowLines - Adds underlines and/or fills (shading) to every Nth row in a table for added readability or improved appearance
• TableSrchr - Similar to the Column search - color rows macro but searches the entire table from the first cell to the last cell.
Contains two macros:Column searcher.wcm (v1.02) - A macro that finds text or symbols in just the current column of a table -- it will skip searching any other table columns. You can also replace any items found from a small pop up dialog.
Column search - color
rows.wcm (v1.01, for WordPerfect 9 and later versions) - Based on code in the above
macro, this macro finds user-specified text in just the current
column of a WordPerfect table (it will skip searching any other
column). It then colors any row that contains the item specified in a
pop-up dialog with a specified color "fill" (the default is light green, but this can be changed).
See the redlined User Modification Area at the top of the macro's code to set your preferences. (Macros can be opened like any other WordPerfect document. Make your changes and click the Save & Compile button on the macro toolbar.)
