Word to Excel (part 2)

In a past post I dealed with the needing of moving Word to Excel.

Recently I needed to get all the tables from a bunch of Word documents inside Excel. The thing was that the Copy-PasteSpecial Format:=”Text” did not behaved as expected, as it did not paste as text but as an image. Uhm, we start to get into trouble. To get things worse, then I found that the paste operation was getting itself in problems when they mess with the screenupdating or the calculation… Excel getting into “Busy state”, so I set a “wait until Complete state” loop to solve this point.

And then I realised the word tables, that came from a PDF that also came from a Word document had an caotic structure because the “translation” operations. Buf… to much to deal with (after we can get the table stuff).

Here is the code that takes the tables from Word to Excel (as they come). Handy to use whenever we need Word To Excel data interchange.
