Default Table deletions based on a string.

Table deletions based on a string.

If a string “AAA” is available in the any table in any cell, then delete all the above tables excluding from “AAA” found table and all the below tables.

Doc format: ".docx"



Suppose they are 1 to 50 tables in a document, AAA found in table 25 then delete all the tables from 1 to table 24.

Purpose is to delete the unnecessary tables base on that strings…

Please help me in this regards and thanks in advance.

Please find a attachment.

For example:
Code:
Sub Demo()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim Rng As Range
With ActiveDocument.Range
  With .Find
    .ClearFormatting
    .Replacement.ClearFormatting
    .Text = "AAA"
    .Replacement.Text = ""
    .Format = False
    .Forward = False
    .Wrap = wdFindStop
    .MatchCase = True
    .MatchWholeWord = False
    .MatchWildcards = False
  End With
  Do While .Find.Execute
    If .Information(wdWithInTable) = True Then
      Set Rng = ActiveDocument.Range(0, .Tables(1).Range.Start)
      Do While Rng.Tables.Count > 0
        Rng.Tables(1).Delete
      Loop
      Exit Do
    End If
    .Collapse wdCollapseStart
  Loop
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Default Deleting the above and below tables

Thank you so much its working great and highly appreciated for your work.

Adding another query related to the same task...

Like wise is it possible to delete the above and below the tables based on a matched strings in a table.

Example: In a document having 100 tables; if match string is available in table 20 then delete all the above tables from table 1 to table 19 & another match string is available in table 50 then delete all the below tables from 51 to table 100. then document will have only the relevant tables from table 20 to table 50 & we had deleted the unnecessary tables manually, can we automate this task, please suggest me ...

Thanks in advance.....

How about a little effort on your part. The code I posted already gives you the clues for how to do that.
