This script alerts you when there are overset cells in a document:

if (app.documents[0].stories.everyItem()
   .tables.everyItem()
   .cells.everyItem()
   .overflows.join('').indexOf('true') >= 0) {
      alert ('There are overset cells in the document.');
}

I know what your next question will be.

Hi Peter,

The OP asked for cellstyle override you alerted overset. So as you mentioned you already know the question, please be kind enough to explain it 🙂

Aha -- thanks, @Manan Joshi  I misread that. Well, finding (cell) style overrides isn't so easy. Text-style overrides can be displayed, but to collect cells with overridden style isn't so easy.

 

Instead of checking whether there are style overrides, maybe clear all overrides. Is that a possibility?

Thanks for confirming @Peter Kahrel, to be honest I was expecting that you would pull out a rabbit from your hat and I would be amazed as always. With this cleared out we need to see what the OP is after, only that would tell us if clearing the overrides would work or not. Another trick that I used in the past for paragraph/character styles is to export the tagged text and then parse it to find the properties that had the overrides applied over it. Not sure if it would work with cell styles, probably not but that remains to be seen.

            if (clearOverridesCmd.enabled) {            
                  var OverCellObject = {
                  cellContent:  cells[k].contents,
                  CellpageNo: cells[k].parent.parent.parentPage.name,
                  cellStyleName:  cells[k].appliedCellStyle.name
                };
             myCellOverrides.push(OverCellObject);
            } 
    }
  }

I tried like this and it was working fine for me! Thanks for your response and efforts @Peter Kahrel and @Manan Joshi
