I am creating a table (oTable) and filling it up with information, adding rows, populating info, etc...

How do I programatically select cells 3,4 - 3,8 for the purposes of merging them? (Incidentally, 3,4- 3,8 is arbitrary. It could be any cell range on the same row.)

Once you have the first cell of the table selected...

    Selection.MoveRight Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=3
    Selection.MoveDown Unit:=wdLine, Count:=4

    Selection.MoveRight Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=4, Extend:=wdExtend


Basically, you MoveRight with Unit:=wdCharacter to go across columns, and MoveDown with Unit:=wdLine to go down rows.

Then add the Extend:=wdExtend option to select to the point where you move to.
