Default Table Cells

In Word 2007, is there a quick way to determine what table cell you
the insertion point is in? I have a vague recolleciton of a feature to
do this in earlier versions of Word. Thanks,

Ross

See if either of the macros at
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/AppErrors/...eIncorrect.htm and
http://gregmaxey.mvps.org/Table_Cell_Data.htm will work in Word 2007.

Thanks, Susan, but it does not work in Word 2007. I think that
sometimes creating an Excel spreadsheet and pasting into Word is
easier.

That's interesting because I have the macro from
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/AppErrors/...eIncorrect.htm installed in Word
2007, and it works as advertised.

Default Table Cells

Hi Ross,

The following macro works in Word 2007 too:

Sub CellAddress()
'This macro displays the address of a table cell on Word's status bar
If Selection.Information(wdWithInTable) = True Then
If Selection.Cells(1).ColumnIndex 26 Then
StatusBar = "Cell Address: " & Chr(64 + Int(Selection.Cells(1).ColumnIndex / 26)) & _
Chr(64 + (Selection.Cells(1).ColumnIndex Mod 26)) & Selection.Cells(1).RowIndex
Else
StatusBar = "Cell Address: " & Chr(64 + Selection.Cells(1).ColumnIndex) & _
Selection.Cells(1).RowIndex
End If
End If
End Sub

Well, I figured this out, and the long and the short of it is that
both macros work. Thanks,

Beware however of the potentially misleading result if the table contains
merged cells.
