Word 2007 Automation - Adding Multiple Tables using VBA

Hi all,

I'm trying to add multiple tables to a word document.  The first table works fine but I cannot get any further tables added properly... any help would be appreciated. Code is attached.  I assumed I would create a table then move to the end of the document then create another table etc.  


'*****EARLY BINDING

objWord.Visible = True
objWord.Activate

objWord.Selection.TypeText "Projects"

objWord.Selection.TypeParagraph

    .Range.Font.Bold = False
'    .Columns(3).SetWidth 0.2, wdAdjustNone
End With

'Load Values into the table
objTable.Cell(1, 1).Range.InsertAfter "PROJECT NAME"
objTable.Cell(1, 2).Range.InsertAfter "START DATE"

    .Bold = True
    .Size = 9

Try:

objDoc.Application.Selection.TypeParagraph
Set objTable = objDoc.Tables.Add(objDoc.Application.Selection.Range, i + 1, 2)


Basically it does two things - adds a paragraph to disconnect from the previous table and replaces the ref to objrange which hasn't changed for the new table to be the end of the document where you placed the cursor.

I had to remove references to the database to test it so hopefully I have re-instated it okay.  It works for me now in a practical test ... so see if this is different?

It works!!! With one strange bug (there's always something isn't there) ... It goes back and deletes almost the entire contents of the first cell in the first table....

Just figured it out... I needed to remove the below code... the .InsertParagraphAfter command was destroying it.  Thanks for your help on this Chris!!!

'objWord.Selection.Collapse
'    With objRange
'        .Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseEnd
'        .MoveEnd
'        .InsertParagraphAfter
'        .Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseEnd
'    End With
