Default cannot enter data into table cells in word 2016

am using sticky keys and have tried cut and paste and direct typing . when I try to enter in this particular cell it wants to put the data in the first cell of the next row . the table created earlier and when I reopened it the column formatting had changed and I reformat it . I have not tried saving and restarting the computer . data entry such as cut and pasting, typing seems to be working in other applications .

Without actually seeing the problem document, it can be difficult for anyone to diagnose the issue. Can you attach a document to a post with some representative data (delete anything sensitive)? You do this via the paperclip symbol on the 'Go Advanced' tab at the bottom of this screen.

here is the word table. while preparing it it had to be saved and the computer restarted. initially prior to the test the last row started with Condition99. the cursor had been in the third column of the previous route . an & was typed at the cursor . it appears, instead, in the first column of the last row in front of Condition99.

There is no third column on the second-last row of your table. It appears someone has deleted the cell that would otherwise have been there.

you are obviously a mind reading genius . yes, I meant OneDrive . I tried the link and it's references are out of date . however, I was able to make some changes and it will take a little time for me to tell if they worked . thank you for the help . at least I've made some progress .

I have no idea what your reply is about - your reference to OneDrive, for example, doesn't seem to be at all related to what's been discussed in this thread.
