    Please let us know what cells so we can give you the final custom CSS codes. Doing it is a little bit tricky. For example: http://css-tricks.com/how-nth-child-works/.

    For example, if you add the following custom CSS codes to the Widget CSS area:

    th:nth-child(2) {

    background-color: yellow !important;

    color: blue;


    This will turn Nov cell to have a yellow background color and blue text.

    Thank you!
