In the standard report, I have tables which can vary (lines name, number of

items, column width)

I have try different solutions (2) and all of them have signifiant problems.

Does anyone have already done something like that ?

Approach #1:

I have add all tables in Excel and link it to Word using:

Link Excel.Sheet.8 "Variable_path" "Variable_cells".

The tables are very flexible but I have the following problems:

1- Standard Excel Underline height is defined as 1/2 point in Word and I

would like to have 1/4 point in Word (Would like to find a way to adjust Word

height in excel)

2- The link is not stable, Word 2003 SP3 jam often.

3- The file path name must be inside excel as a variable; I would like to

point directly to the same excel file as printmerge.

Approach #2:

All tables are make inside Word using variables. Since I want a line between

each table line, I can't put all conditions in a box.

The problems with this Approach are:

1- The table column width can't be adjusted.

2- Since I want to have border between each elements, I have to create split

the table in n box with condition on each box.

It always insert one empty line between each elements.

ex: IF( Mergefield Item9 )<> "" "

<Table with border>

" "") (this give a line between each table line)

would like to have:

ex: IF( Mergefield Item9 )<> ""

"<Table with border>"

"") (Impossible to add " in the same line as the table line)

Does it exist other solutions to my problem ??

Is there a table merge function in Word ??

(Only one excel data line is used for the text merge and tables could takes

source from excel)

Thanks.
