    Embedded Table Bug (2000 SR-3)

    If I embed one Word table within another table, the embedded table's first cell (row 1, col 1) seems to inherit properties of the container cell. This seems to be the case for the ID property, so if the containing table cell's ID property is set to something like "ABC", then cell(1,1) of the embedded table will also have its ID property set to "ABC", although no other cells seem to inherit the containing table's properties.

    Have others encountered this "feature"?

    I can replicate that. I can't think of why it should work that way. Can you work around it with a table property of some kind? (Hmmm... not with ID, you can't.)

    How about bookmarks?

    Insert a 2x2 table. Insertion point in top left cell
    Selection.Cells(1).Range.Bookmarks.Add "Fred"
    ?Selection.Cells(1).Range.Bookmarks.Count

    Thanks for the look-see and suggestions. Actually, once we discovered it, it wasn't that critical a bug -- we just needed to account for it. It might be caused by an internal pointer reference Word might use to link the embedded table to the containing table -- who knows.

    Just another caveat for Word slaves.
