Hi ?B?c2Fua3VyaWFu?=,

I am unable to merge 2 cells in a worrd table. The "Merge Cells" option is
disabled in my Word 2003.

Have you selected the cells you want to merge before selecting the command?

Does this happen in all tables, in all documents? Or only for certain ones?
What do the cells contain?

new documents.

Hi Sankurian,

OK. Try holding down the CTRL key while starting Word (to go into Safe Mode).
Does the problem still appear, or are you now able to create a table, select some
cells (in the same row or column) and merge them?

Yes, I have selected the cells to merge.
this is not only for 1 document. the merge cells option is disabled even for
new documents.
this is happening only in 1 particular PC.

Are you sure you have highlighted only the two cells and not beyond.
This could happen if they are the last two cells in the tabe or the
first two.
