I had finally gotten my NUMBERS table the way I wanted it when I noticed that I needed some rows between two entries. I'm a beginner, but I've learned how to add rows. Unfortunately, I've also learned how easy it is  to get into trouble with NUMBERS. My table is using the "Blue Headers" style. The problem is that I somehow got one "Blue Headers" cell into a column where it doesn't belong, and it's causing problems, so I can't just ignore it. How do I remove it? I've tried highlighting it and pressing the DELETE button,but  that doesn't work.

    What happened is you copied a cell from a header and pasted it elsewhere into the table.  It copied the contents of the cell including the formatting, just as it should. You can change the cell fill color and borders back to how they were (the procedures are covered in the User's Manual). Or you can select the table, go to the sidebar, click on the triangle to the right of "blue headers", and select "clear and apply style".  This will clear all user-added formatting from the table and put it back to the template default.
