I want to have a table inside a Microsoft Word document. The background color of each row should be either white or gray. So lets say even numbered rows should white and odd numbered should be gray. When I insert a new row the following row colors should adapt automatically. Is this possible with Word 2010 and if yes, how can I realise it?

this question should be rather asked in SuperUser.Com. However, I think table style feature is what you need. –  Kaz Jaw Jun 18 '13 at 21:15

This is easy with Table Styles:

Whatever style you select will apply to the entire table, including to rows you add/insert as you go along.

@Karan he was referring to changing colors based on the contents of the cells, which is something you can do in Excel, but isn't relevant to this question. –  Sparr Jun 19 '13 at 0:52
