Change table with another one?

May 22, 2014 at 2:01 PM
Here is my problem,

I have a table in the 3th page of Word document and I need to modify it. Sometimes table will be expand and sometimes it will be get shortened. Is there any way I can do it?

What I mean is, lets say I have 1x3 table and I need to make it 6x3 and fill it with some data. How can I do it?

Maybe better place Token instead of your table, and then replace it with table generated from your code :)

I saw function to replace tokens add by other user (dont remember name), and used it for tables:
public void ReplaceTextWithTable(string tokenName, TableTypeEnum tableTypeEnum)
            int count = 1;
            var countReplace = 0;
            foreach (var paragraph in document.Paragraphs)
                var valuesIndex = paragraph.FindAll(tokenName);
                if (valuesIndex.Count > 0)

                    foreach (var valueIndex in valuesIndex)
                        paragraph.RemoveText(valueIndex, tokenName.Length);
                        if (countReplace == count)

protected Novacode.Table CreateTable()
            Novacode.Table table = document.AddTable(2, 3);

            table.Design = TableDesign.LightGridAccent3;
            table.Alignment = Alignment.left;
            table.AutoFit = AutoFit.Window;

            table.Rows[1].Cells[1].Paragraphs[0].Append("Johny Bravo");
            return table;
