Default Cell Padding or Margins Within a Table

Greetings! I have a table with many cells containing text. The text is not
flush against the left border of the cells; there is reasonable space with
the text left-aligned. When I insert cells (a row at a time) into the table
and add text, that text is flush against the left border. All the text
settings appear the same. When I click within the original cells and check
the tab ruler, I see the indent sliders are just to the right of the blue
"partitions"; when I click within the cells I added, the sliders appear right
on the "partitions" and won't allow me to slide them to the left. I can't
move them in the Paragraph dialog box either.

Any suggestions?
Thanks,

Have you checked the cell margins in the Table Properties (Cell Options)?

Once again, Ms. Barnhill, you have saved my bacon. When I selected the
entire table and looked at the cell properties, the margins were blank. I
checked off the "Same as the whole table", but no changes happened. When I
selected a range of cells and looked at the cell properties, they were zeros.
I typed in the margins from a cell with "good" spacing, and it worked like a
charm. Thanks again!!

I'm glad that helped. I find that often you have to drill down to get
meaningful results (selecting an entire table/document just returns
garbage).
