Hi,

I tried for straight table, it not works.  But when I tried converting it to Pivot table and it works.  May be this is an issue.

So, first temporarily convert your table to Pivot apply styles required and convert table back to straight table.

Hope attached file helps you.

Jagan.

Hi Archana,

Try this way

1) Document Properties -> General -> Styling Mode (Set as Advanced)

2) Enable Design Grid (ctrl + g) or by clicking with mouse

3) Click right button of your mouse on placing the pointer on the header of the table Click on "Custom format Cell" now select the color and font you wish.

This is the way I usually do, i you have any problems can you attach your sample file.

Regards,

Jagan.
