    Finding a table (Word 2000 SR1)

    I have a template that contains, amongst other things, a number of pre-formatted tables. The users may create other tables.
    I want a macro to run in a specific table but I have no way of knowing where that table will be in the sequence when the macro is run.
    I have added a bookmark at the beginning of the table and that enables me to locate the table and run the macro.
    Is that the correct / only way of finding a table in this scenario please?

    Bookmarks are a good way of marking specific places in a document. Instead of marking the beginning of the table, you might also set a bookmark on the entire table (select it by clicking inside the table, then pressing Alt+Num 5.)

    Offhand I wouldn't know of another way to identify a specific table, unless each table contains some text that is guaranteed to be unique in the document (even after the user has edited the document.)

    I thought I had seen somewhere that there is some way of identifying a specific table but clearly if you are not aware of it, then I am off track. Many thanks for confirming what I am doing is a correct method.
