Table format Problem

Occasional Contributor


when I insert a table into another table, the columns move and the structure is destroyed. Both table have the same format and use the same style sheet.

I insert the table using the following command:

Selection.InsertFile FileName:="_Table.docx", Range:="", _
ConfirmConversions:=False, Link:=False, Attachment:=False

Is there a solution for this?

How can I upload files?

@Juergen_Knauf Before inserting (I used copy and paste) the Client Table into row 3 of the Master table, you need to merge the cells in that row and also set the Left and RIght cell margins to 0.  After doing that and pasting the Client Table, this is the result



That's already not bad, unfortunately you can see visually that something was inserted there.
I am not sure what you mean by "something was inserted there"
