    Question Globally change Text Style in a Table

    I inserted an excel worksheet as an AutoCAD entity. The worksheet was inserted as an AutoCAD table (which was great). But the text is all that basic, ugly Standard Text Style. I want it to be RomanS (not much prettier) but I do not know how to change the table's text style globally. The Properties dialog box holds no answers for this.

    I know that I can change each individual cell's text style, size (etc etc) but I wanna know if there is a way to do this once, for the whole table ..... Is there a way to globally modify a table once it has been created in this fashion?

    Have you tried changing the text style for the particular table within the table wizard? This may help.
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    Hi Rico

    Please note I have *moved* this thread from the AutoCAD 2006 General forum to this one as I feel this particular Forum is a more appropriate place for such a topic.

    Thanks, Mike

    If I paste the Excel Worksheet as an AutoCAD entity, it does not take me to the table wizard. How can I access it? (Wow is that a dumb question.)

    You would need to edit the specified table style. You can get to it by going to Format -> Table Style

    Did you want me to answer that last one too
