Experts, my application generates word documents for internal use. The data in the documents is put into a word table similar to what is shown in the picture. As you can see from my form I have given the use the ability to format certain aspects of the appearance of the tables in the document that will be produced. Currently to provide the preview I create an instance of word and actually build the table according to the user selections. Then select and copy the table and then create a bipmap from the image on the clip board. What I dont like about this is having to wait for word and the image is not a very good image. Could someone give me some examples of how I could accomplish this by drawing this table directly on the form and do away with the process I am currently using?

Thanks in advance...

Have you considered using the DataGridView?  It can be formatted to some degree.

Another option would be to use a TableLayoutPanel (with Labels in it) which can handle those rows at the top and bottom that span multiple columns.

Mike, thanks for the advice. I have looked at the table layout control and that looks like the way to go.
