How do I create a macro that removes empty carriage returns from a Word table cell?
Posted on 2008-11-02
I'm a technical writer and often edit people's Word documents. A common formatting issue is that people place extra carriage returns in their tables. Word has an excellent search/replace facility, but it doesn't have a code for finding the end-of-table-cell character. So, I can remove all double carriage returns (¶¶, or ^p^p) in a cell, but can't remove that final ¶ before the end of the cell. I'd like to create a macro to find and replace "¶ followed by an end-of-table-cell character" with just the end-of-table-cell character. I know this has got to be an extremely simple bit of code but I'm not familiar enough with VBA yet to know what to do. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
