MS Word Table Shading Problem

Specs: Macintosh
I'm trying to fill table cells with color. One cell in a row
has a complete fill; the other cells in the row have a strip
of another color across the bottom. I don't see any
differences in the specs from one to the other. Can
anyone help?

After not finding any good solutions on any forums, I finally
found my own solution, if others have the same problem --
I've seen some other postings indicating that this is a
problem that others have shared. Here's a kluge - not
elegant, but it works.

I selected one of the cells with the problem and under
Format > Borders and Shading, I applied the shading color
that was not completely filling my cells to the entire Table,
by using the Apply to: pulldown on the righthand side of the
UI. Of course that made all the cells in my table the same
color, but it succeeded in completely filling the cells that had
been only partially filled before. I then went back and
selected the cells that I wanted to be shaded in other colors
and shaded those, using the Apply to: pulldown selecting
Cell. Although tedious, this ultimately resulted in my having
all my cells properly filled.
