This parameter is available in the Row formatting > Header & footer rows tab of the macro editor, and is dependent on the value set in the Number of header rows parameter. If the Number of header rows parameter is zero (0), any header row(s) in the table is displayed as data row(s). If the header rows are hidden, any styles applied to such rows are ignored. 

This parameter is not available for the Attachment Table macro.
