Hi Experts, 

I need a javascript for my financial tables. I have 90+ similar tables to do. I am new to scripting. I have created table and formated it in InDesign. Basically what I want is that I want to apply same formatting to selected tables. Table style is limited and it is not working for it, lots of manual task.

Please help.Screenshot 2022-09-08 at 3.02.35 AM.png

Expensive, but it works - Woodwing SmartStyles.

What do you mean by 'apply the same formatting to selected tables'? Which formatting? Column widths? Alignments? You can check this title:

It's an INDesign/JavaScript tutorial for beginners and has several examples of scripting tables.

Thank you, @Peter Kahrel I will check, formatting means Column width, row height, cell styles!
