Default Macro to set selected cell padding to table default

Hi Fred,

I chose to post this under "Tables" rather than macros or VBA, and did
not cross-post. Hope I did it correctly.

I'd probably have chosen a cross-post (so that the message appears in
both groups, but you only post once). Sometimes, you can get VBA help in
an end-user group; and sometimes an end-user group can give you a
solution the VBA folks aren't aware of :-)

Anyway, can you describe the actions you took when recording the second
macro, where the CellPadding actions weren't recorded? Did you type in
values, or click a button to "reset" the cell padding, or...?

Word 2003 In a Table, using a macro:

I can customize the cell padding with the following code:

With Selection.Cells(1)
.TopPadding = InchesToPoints(0.05)
.BottomPadding = InchesToPoints(0.05)
.LeftPadding = InchesToPoints(0.05)
.RightPadding = InchesToPoints(0.05)
.WordWrap = True
.FitText = False
End With

which code was obtained by recording "keystrokes" (mouse clicks and

If I then run a record-keystroke macro to remove the custom padding
from the cell I get only the last two lines of code (.WordWrap and
..FitText). The "TopPadding =", etc., statements are missing
altogether. But running this "remove" macro doesn't work. The
existing custom padding in the selected cell remains.
