Default how do i resize multiple tables at once

i am working with a multi-page template that has multiple tables on each
page, one large and three small. I would like to resize all of the smaller
tables in the entire doc at the same time. Is there any way to resize all of
the small tables in the doc at once? is there any way to resize all of the
smaller tables on one page at once? Or must i resize each table individually?

there's no magic way as long as you're doing it manually (the resizing).

Through the UI: if you can manage to combine the tables into one
temporarily, by deleting all content in between them (I suggest you try
this in a copy of your document :-)), then you can resize, and copy the
individual parts back again.

Through VBA, one more versatile than myself might "easily" come up with
a solution to, say, read the settings of the second table in a document,
and adjust all subsequent tables accordingly. It's very important to
specify exactly what kind of "settings" are meant (usually, at least
column widths). And if your tables don't have the exact same structure,
things will get complicated.
