Hi all, This is quote from the "Microsoft Excel 2010 by John Walkenbach" book: "Clearing formats doesn't clear the background color in a range that has been designated as a table unless you replace the table style background colors manually". But, When I create a table and right click -> format cells -> Fill -> background color and then chose a color then OK. After that I chose all cells of that table (which now has a background color) and the Clear->clear formats. But the background color also will be cleared. Why? The wrong is with my work or the book's text please? Thanks.
