Check reading order warning for tables in Word 365

Can anyone help me figure out why I keep getting these warnings in a word document with multiple tables from the accessibility checker?

I make it a point to mark heading rows,
Turn off the break across pages option.
Specify uniform top and bottom cell margins of 0.1

The only recommendation that I get from the accessibility checker to fix this is to specify a style for the table.
Doing this often removes changes I have made previously.
Is there something I should look for or do to correct this?
