How to write into an existing MS Word document table ?

11 views (last 30 days)
Hello,
I use a word template document with an existing table inside.
I need to write some text inside the table, however I can not find the right command to move the selection into the table.
I use actxserver:
Word = actxserver('Word.Application');
Word.Visible = true
doc = invoke(Word.Documents,'Open','template.docx');
selection=Word.Selection;
I know the commands to create a table and then write into it, but I can not find the commands to write into an existing table.
Thanks in advance

I actually found myself the solution:
Word.Selection.GoTo(2,2)
% 2: wdGoToTable
% 2: wdGoToNext
% https://docs.microsoft.com/fr-fr/office/vba/api/word.selection.goto
Then move into the table with:
Word.Selection.MoveDown
Word.Selection.MoveLeft
Word.Selection.MoveRight
