Generate Word documents: Table column - background color formatting

I have successfully populated a Microsoft Word template using dynamic values / developer tool in Word. My flow populates a table based on criteria selected in PowerApps. Now I want to format the background color of a column in the table so when it equals high priority the background color is red, medium as yellow, and low as green. Any ideas how to do this? Thanks in advance.

If you're strictly using Word Content Controls then it's going to be painful to do any sort of smart formatting or customizing.

Your best best is using HTML in word content using either the Encodian or Present IT connectors.

What you want to do is absolutely possible. I've done extensive word document integration and what you're looking to do and will share more with you later.
