Default Highlighted Tables showing extra space and won't flatten


So, I have these tables from this book I'm working on, but I can't reduce the size anymore than this or remove those white areas. I don't even know what they are or they are there. Any help?

The "excessive" space in cells could be because the rows have exact widths specified. Another possibility is that some Spacing Before and/or Spacing After has been applied to the text paragraphs in the cells.

Okay, thanks. I figured it out after I read your reply. I had to go to line spacing options and reduce Before and After spacing to 0pt. I kept trying the Line and Paragraph Spacing button and trying to Remove Space Before and After Paragraph, but it wasn't working. Thanks for the reply.
