Default Table moves when applying styles

In Word 2007, I draw a table 2" x 2" and center it horizontally. When I apply
a table style to it, the table moves to the left margin and I have to
recenter it or drag it back to the center. If I reapply the same style or a
different style from the ribbon, it again jumps to the left margin. Is there
a way to prevent it from moving when I apply a style to it?

You could modify the table style to be centered. (In the Modify Style
dialog, click Format | Table Properties and choose Center on the Table tab.)

Thank you for your reply. In other words, all the table styles have the
table alignment set to Left? That means there is no universal change I can
make. I have to change each style separately?

I assumed you were using a single table style for all your tables. But yes,
if you want all tables to be centered, then you'd have to modify all the
styles.
