Default Is it possible to re-order the tables?

Hello everyone,

I am having a word-document that contains 594 tables, each table contains 6 column and 2 rows.

In each table, the first cell contains the question number. Currently, the are ordered. (1, 2, 3, ... , 594), as follows:



The required is to re-order / re-arrange the position of these questions, to be: (3, 6, 4, 7, ... , 587).

I have the new order in Excel-Sheet:





So, the final version should be like:



As you can see, in the final version, it is not necessary to re-number them as 1, 2, 3, ..., it can be left as it is 3, 6, 4, 7, ...

---

Rearranging the tables one-by-one is really tidous. I have tried to copy the question to the excel and sort them, but that is not efficient, the mathematical equations in the questions were disturbed.

---

Imagine you have some multiple choice questions is MS-Word and you wanted to use the same questions with another arrangement to avoid cheating in the exam, how to shuffle them with a specific order?

---

Your help would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Your sample should include an Excel workbook with the table order and a Word document with several tables showing how they are numbered.
