    Hi i want to adjust the size of the table and i want to insert different data in each row please help me for that

    • Sumit Jain says:

      objDoc.Tables.Add objRange, intNoOfRows, intNoOfColumns ,,, this way you can define your table size.
      And for filling different data in each row, while iterating through rows you can fill wat ever data you want.
      For i = 1 To intNoOfRows

      For j = 1 To intNoOfColumns

      objTable.Cell(i, j).Range.Text = “Sumit_” & i & j

      Next

      Next

      Hope this answers your query

    I have a list of colon separated strings ( I.e. Abc: def, ghi: jkl) that I want to loop through, set the text to the left of the colon as column heading ( I.e. abc, ghi), set text to the right of the colon as column value (def,jkl). Any ideas?

    • Sumit Jain says:

      Sub sumit()

      Dim text

      text = “ABC:abc, DEF:def, GHI:ghi, JKL:jkl”

      cols = Split(text, “,”)

      For i = 0 To UBound(cols)
      rr = Split(cols(i), “:”)
      For j = 0 To UBound(rr)
      Range(Chr(65 + i) & j + 1).Value = rr(j)
      Next
      Next
      End Sub

      It will solve for you. Please let me know for further queries.

    How to change the font of the context of the table. For example, I have a table of 2 rows and 5 columns. I want to bold the first row and change the color of 2nd row to red. Thanks in advance

    For horizontal alignment in specific cells I have found many online variations however none of them seem to work.
    Does anyone know how to horizontally align the text in “objTable.cell(1, 1)” to the right?

    The same counts for a border around a specific range of cells.
    Does anyone know how to add a border around the first five cells in the first column?

  8. SuzanDL says:

    Sub JustARandomTable ()
    Dim intNoOfRows
    Dim intNoOfColumns
    Dim objWord
    Dim objDoc
    Dim objRange
    Dim objTable

    intNoOfRows = 3
    intNoOfColumns = 2

    Set objWord = CreateObject(“Word.Application”)
    objWord.Visible = True
    Set objDoc = objWord.Documents.Add
    Set objRange = objDoc.Range
    objDoc.Tables.Add objRange, intNoOfRows, intNoOfColumns
    Set objTable = objDoc.Tables(1)

    With objTable
    .cell(1, 1).Merge Mergeto:=.cell(2, 1)
    .cell(3, 1).Merge Mergeto:=.cell(3, 2)
    .cell(1, 1).Range.Text = “This is one of the cells” & Chr(10) & “I would like to align (horizontally ) to the right”
    En With
    End Sub

    • SuzanDL says:

      This is what I currently have, does anyone know what to add in order to change the horizontal alignment?

      • SuzanDL says:

        Found it!:

        ‘HorizontalAlignment
        .cell(4, 1).Range.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = 2 ‘is to the right
        .cell(5, 1).Range.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = 1 ‘is to center
