    Hi - I used "Change style of all tables with VBA" in Word 2010 on my entire document but it made general text bold and headings not bold. How to I remove/disable the VBA?
    Everytime I try to use a table design manually, the VBA takes over and then I'll have to manually change the headings and text back.
    Obviously I'm not familiar with VBA/macros so any help is appreciated.
    Thanks
