    Search for the first column in a table?

    TYPE A Level 1

      I have numerous tables that I've setup up with Paragraph, Cell and Table styles. They are linked to Excel files. Every time they are updated everything updates perfectly, except one column. All the columns are right justified, but the first column and because of the Paragraph styles it right justifies everything.

       

      I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to search and change all the text in every first column of a table and have them be left justified. The text in the left column has up to 4 different styles on alternating lines or I would just setup a Character style and highlight and change manually.

       

      Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

       

      I am using version CS6 and if there is a way of doing this using the Multi/Find Change plugin, I do have and use that, but I think that is just to run multiple searchs, in a particular order.
