    [FAQ's: OD] How do I add/modify/read a table programmatically?

    To programmatically add, modify, or read a table cell in a Word document:




    Word 2003 And VB 6 Code Example (Add Table):

    VB Code:
    1. Option Explicit
    2. 'Add a reference to MS Word xx.0 Object Library
    3. Public Function AddTable(ByVal iRows As Integer, ByVal iCols As Integer) As Boolean
    4.    
    5.     Dim oApp As Word.Application
    6.     Dim oDoc As Word.Document
    7.     Dim oTable As Word.Table
    8.     Dim oRowHeader As Word.Row
    9.     Dim x As Integer
    10.    
    11.     Set oApp = New Word.Application
    12.     'Open either a blank new document or...
    13.     Set oDoc = oApp.Documents.Add
    14.     'open an exisiting document
    15.     'Set oDoc = oApp.Documents.Open("C:\Document1.doc")
    16.     oDoc.Activate
    17.     'Move to the end of the document
    18.     oApp.Selection.Move Unit:=wdStory
    19.     oApp.Selection.TypeParagraph
    20.     oApp.Selection.TypeParagraph
    21.     'Add a new table
    22.     Set oTable = oDoc.Tables.Add(Range:=Selection.Range, NumRows:=iRows, NumColumns:=iCols, _
    23.     DefaultTableBehavior:=wdWord9TableBehavior, AutoFitBehavior:=wdAutoFitWindow)
    24.     'Format the table and populate
    25.     With oTable
    26.         If .Style <> "Table Grid" Then
    27.             .Style = "Table Grid"
    28.         End If
    29.         .ApplyStyleHeadingRows = True
    30.         .ApplyStyleLastRow = True
    31.         .ApplyStyleFirstColumn = True
    32.         .ApplyStyleLastColumn = True
    33.         'Populate and format the table header
    34.         Set oRowHeader = oTable.Rows.Item(1)
    35.         oRowHeader.Shading.Texture = wdTextureNone
    36.         oRowHeader.Shading.ForegroundPatternColor = wdColorAutomatic
    37.         oRowHeader.Shading.BackgroundPatternColor = wdColorGray25
    38.         For x = 1 To iCols
    39.             'Bold on for the cell
    40.             .Cell(1, x).Range.Font.Bold = True
    41.             .Cell(1, x).Range.Text = "ColumnHeader" & x
    42.         Next
    43.     End With
    44.     'Clean up and leave document open
    45.     Set oRowHeader = Nothing
    46.     Set oTable = Nothing
    47.     Set oDoc = Nothing
    48.     Set oApp = Nothing
