Under the Design tab, I selected the "Banded Rows" option. When I did, the Table Styles preview then showed banded rows.

Then when I tried to apply a style that had banded rows, the banded rows did not apply to the table. What went wrong?

Emily,

 

I guess that the table already has its own format.

 

Please select the table, then go to Home >> Font >> Fill Color.

And select No Fill as shown in the below screenshot:

Hope that helps

This is not working for me.  Still no alternating row color.
