Hello Everybody,

The auto expand tables' new row format does not match the rest of the table.

Using VBA to autoexpand a table by finding the row below the table and making an entry. There is headers and a total row.

This happens also when manually turning off the total row, and then typing below the table to trigger the auto expand

<TABLE style="WIDTH: 987pt; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=1314><COLGROUP><COL style="WIDTH: 35pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 1682" width=46><COL style="WIDTH: 67pt;

The last row above is of the wrong format.

Maybe I could use a line of code to fill a format down if anyone knows of such, but before that I was wondering if there was some kind of option I am missing.

This has not always happened.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Jeff

This does seem to work to copy the formats of the first row, and paste over the new row.

<font face=Courier New>        Range("A16:M16").Copy<br>        Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormats, _<br>        Operation:=xlNone, _<br>        SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False</FONT>



Not natural yet it does seem to work, I am still unsure why the new row would be of a different format.... Even the cells below have been formatted to the same as desired. Maybe this has something to do with the total row. The total row was a recent addition to the table..maybe thats got something to do with it.
