Delete the last column of the second table in every section by means of a Macro

Dear Experts:

My current document has the following make-up

  • Lots of section breaks
  • Each section has got exactly two tables

A macro should delete the last column of the second table of each and every section.

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

Regards, Andreas
