    When using Word 2007 for the PC I would often use tables and then spruce them up with all the preformated styles. I thought I was able to do this in Word 2008, but I cannot find any of those preformated styles in Word 2008. Am I missing something? Word 2008 for the Mac must have them somewhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    I'm not certain...

    what you are asking about. But I can't even find the word "performated" style in the Office: Mac 2008 "Help" section. You have the opportunity to "ask" someone from Office: Mac 2008 with their online community chat or contact Microsoft directly. Sorry I couldn't answer your question. :eek::confused:

    Maybe you meant...

    "Document Elements" "Quick Tables" "Charts" "SmartArt Graphics" and "WordArt" are now located just above your outline in the bar just above your ruler. Hope this helps. :cool:

    That inserts a preformated new table. It doesn't update the basic table with information I already had... Hm...

    I just joined Mactopia and posted my question there. Thank you for the web site where I could hopefully find some sort of answer to my question!
