Default Simplest way to get row and column number?

Is there a simpler way to get row and column numbers from the current selected cell in a word table with horizontally or vertically merged cells?
I need to retrieve the text of the cell above current selected cell.
This code does not works (works only if I add 1 to column index) cause there's merged cells in the selected row.


Code:
selection.tables(1).Cell(selection.Cells(1).rowindex-1,selection.Cells(1).columnindex).Range.text
Thanks

For current cell addresses, look in the 'Sticky' thread at the top of this forum...

Finding the adjacent cell(s) requires looping forward/backward, as appropriate.

With horizontally merged cells, there may be more than one cell above or below.

With vertically merged cells, you may have to loop through multiple rows to find all those adjacent or to find the one below.

And, where you're dealing with both, you might have to deal with horizontally-merged cells above/below/beside vertical ones.

Apparently it will be too complex, I give up, as it will not be something essential.
Thanks!

If you use the selection object it isn't too complex.
Code:
Sub GetUp()
  Dim aCell As Cell, aRng As Range
  Set aRng = Selection.Range
  Selection.Range.Cells(1).Select
  Selection.MoveUp
  If Selection.Range.Cells.Count = 1 Then
    Debug.Print Selection.Range.Cells(1).Range.Text
  Else
    Debug.Print "No cells immediately above selection"
  End If
  aRng.Select  'restore selection
End Sub
