bool MakeWordCompatible()


Type Description

true, if the table has been modified (i.e., several columns have been merged); otherwise, false.


Microsoft Word displays an error and fails to open a document if the table in the document contains more than 64 columns. The MakeWordCompatible method addresses this problem in such a way that columns with indexes larger than 63 are merged into one.

If the table has been successfully modified, the MakeWordCompatible method returns true.
