Dear Experts:

for the currently selected table I would like to run the following action using VBA:

Split the current table into several tables, i.e each row is converted into a single table with manual page breaks in between these newly created tables.

Example: currently selected table has 5 rows. After running the macro, 5 individual tables are created with 4 manual page breaks in between.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Hi,

pls try

Sub Macro()

Set tbl = ActiveDocument.Tables(1)

For Idx = tbl.Rows.Count To 2 Step -1
    tbl.Cell(Idx, 1).Range.Select
    Selection.SplitTable
    Selection.InsertBreak Type:=wdPageBreak
Next
 With ActiveDocument.Content.Find
  .ClearFormatting
  .Replacement.ClearFormatting
  .Text = Chr(13) & Chr(12) & Chr(13)
  .Replacement.Text = Chr(12)
  .Forward = True
  .Format = False
  .Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll  ' <-- Use wdReplaceAll if required
End With
End Sub

Hi Rgonzo,

this macro works just great. Thank you very much for your great and professional support.

I slightly tweaked the code:

Line 3: Set tbl = Selection.Tables(1)
