Hi. I´m trying to use the BIP_WordTableDef.doc but it does not apply the styles. For example, the BIP_WordTableDef.doc is:

Default 1000

Total 1000

Default has style normal. And total has style Title1.

When I create the table in epm add-in it does not apply the styles. For example:

Budget 1000

Total 1000

Total has style Title1 but is not show.

When I create the datalink the option "UseStyles" is disabled. I don´t know where can it be enabled.

When I check the Object the option Use Styles is enabled.

I also can´t apply the BIP_WordTableDef from the server ( I upload this file to the server). It only works when I save it locally and specifying where the file is located... Can anyone help me please??

    Hi Maria,

    From the description and screenshots you've given it appears that you've got some steps wrong.

    I am assuming you are trying to apply a BIP_WordTableDef template to a table you have datalinked from word.

    In order to appply the styles in the template, you need to select Word Template (below "useStyles") and then click on Format, this opens up the format template window where you are able to select template from your previously configured BIP_WordTableDef.doc template

    You also mentioned that you are unable to use the BIP_WordTableDef on the server, it means you are not connected to the server. When you connect to the datasource from a document, there are two connections; one local and the other server, make sure you are also connected to the server.

    There is a SAP KBA (1987237) which gives an explanation on why BIP_WordTableDef styles are sometimes not applied.
