Default Format a Word 2003 Table Cell as a dollar amount

I like using Word tables for many things. However, other than the SUM
function, I have not been able to figure out how to format individual cells
to relect a dollwr amount such as $2,592.88. Can anyone suggest how to do so?
Thank you

Word doesn't attach formatting to table cells. That's strictly an Excel
trick.

If you're using protected form fields, you can put one in a table cell and
specify a currency format for the field, but not for the cell as such.

Or you can embed a section of an Excel worksheet in your Word document and
use its capabilities.
