[Athen] Marking Table Headers in Word

I have only ever used the repeat header rows checkbox, and it works flawlessly. I had never heard of the other method. If you are getting an accessibility error, I think you know you're going to have to check that box. :)

Subject: [Athen] Marking Table Headers in Word

Hi all. In Word 2016 there are at least two ways of marking headers cells. In the Table design tab, you can select the box for "Header Row" in the Table Style Options. In the Table Layout tab, you can select the option to "Repeat Header Rows".

My question is whether it is best to use one method over the other, or should we use both? When I run the Word accessibility checker it flags as Error when "Repeat Header Rows" is not checked, even if "Header Row" style is checked. Has this changed in Word 365 or 2019?
