Hi all,

recently I've been working a lot with tables in Writer and am using an AutoFormat style. It works nicely, but: When I open the document on another computer, I cannot apply the style to NEW tables. Tables that have already been styled don't loose the style information, however.
I thought table AutoFormat styles would be saved within the document along the others like page styles...

Does anybody know where table AutoFormat styles are stored and how I can transfer them between computers?
Searching only retrieved tutorials on how to create such styles or apply them to tables...

Thanks in advance,

AutoFormat are stored in autotbl.fmt, a configuration file. It is generally not advisable to manipulate these files. Its location depends on the system used, for example with Windows:
