Problem: The table window only shows empty column headers


After opening an existing ArcMap document and opening a table, only empty column headers are shown in the table window.


A problem occured when restoring the table appearance settings from the ArcMap document.

Solution or Workaround

Modifying a table appearance property resets the appearance settings. The table should then display properly.

  1. Click Options under the Tools menu.
  2. Click the Tables tab.
  3. Change a property. For example, if the font size it 8 point, retype 8 for the font size.
  4. Click OK and then re-open the table window.
