This will copy the text from the cell to the end of the document.
Sub CopyCellText()
    Dim tbl As Word.Table
    Dim strText As String
    
    Set tbl = ActiveDocument.Tables(3)
    strText = GetCellText(tbl.Cell(2, 2))
    ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("\EndOfDoc").Range.Text = strText
End Sub
 
Function GetCellText(cel As Word.Cell) As String
    Dim rng As Range
    
    Set rng = cel.Range
    rng.MoveEnd wdCharacter, -1 'drop cell format character
    GetCellText = Trim$(rng.Text)
End Function

Many thanks for your help with my question. The above code works but the only thing is that when the contents of the relevant cell are pasted at the end of the document, they loose formatting they had in the source cell.
I would be grateful if you could modify the code so that the formatting is not lost in the process.
As this  involves some extra work, I am increasing the points for this problem  to 500.

My apologies. You did say copy and paste.
Sub CopyCellText()
    Dim tbl As Table
    Dim strText As String
    Dim rng As Range
 
    Set tbl = ActiveDocument.Tables(3)
    Set rng = tbl.Cell(2, 2).Range
    rng.MoveEnd wdCharacter, -1  'drop cell format character
    rng.Copy
    ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("\EndOfDoc").Range.Paste
End Sub
