Hi Andreas,
 I'm sure that you could do this yourself, but see if this does it:
Sub FirstSingle()
    Dim tbl As Table
    Dim i As Integer
    
    For Each tbl In ActiveDocument.Tables
        i = i + 1
        If tbl.Rows.Count = 1 Then
            MsgBox "First single-row table is No: " & i
            Exit For
        End If
    Next tbl
End Sub

Open in new window

thank you very much for your great help. I do quite a lot of code writing myself by mostly tweaking your codes but sometimes I got stuck with even the easiest things.
