I am running Office 2010 on Windows 7. Default font is Arial 10pt. Until recently I have not had issues, but over the past few weeks when I create tables the font is Times New Roman 10pt. I have checked the Table Text style, which is Arial 10pt, and the Normal style which is Arial 10pt. Where else can I check?

Check the style setting of the table, under table tools design, some of the "pretty" ones have default fonts. – Steve Feb 7 '13 at 10:11
All tables have a default font. If you select the table and, as Steve says, go to Design under Table Tools, the table design used by your table will be highlighted. Right click on the highlighted table design, select Modify Table Style. You can change the default font and font size in the dialog box that opens. – burrowsrjl Feb 9 '13 at 23:59
