Default VBA coding to insert a word table using quickparts and insert table menu

Can anyone give me some VBA coding advice to select one of many listed quickparts table place holder and then Add a title msgbox and source to be completed and "insert table" menu to select number of columns and rows. I have my default table style set up to apply styles.



Thanks

To insert a named building block from the Built-In Building Blocks.dotx file you can use:

Code:
Sub InsertBuildingBlock()
Dim oTmp As Template
  Templates.LoadBuildingBlocks
  For Each oTmp In Templates
    If UCase(oTmp.Name) = "BUILT-IN BUILDING BLOCKS.DOTX" Then
      Exit For
    End If
  Next oTmp
  If Not oTmp Is Nothing Then
    oTmp.BuildingBlockTypes(wdTypeTables).Categories("Built-in").BuildingBlocks("With Subheads 1").Insert Where:=Selection.Range, RichText:=True
  End If
lbl_Exit:
  Exit Sub
End Sub

You could create your own custom building block in that template or gallery with the correct title and number of rows/columns.

Thanks for your reply.

I would like the user to be able to select which quickpart table to use as we have many options, so would like a message box to appear listing options to choose from then add how many rows and columns as these vary and not set.

Well a quick part is just a saved table. Once you insert it in the document you could then add or delete columns.


Say your create and save a simple two row X one column table as quickpart in the tables gallery "Built-In" category of the Building Blocks.dotx file. You could then use something like this:

Code:
Sub InsertBuildingBlock()
Dim oTmp As Template
Dim oRng As Range
Dim oTbl As Table
Dim lngRows As Long, lngCols As Long
  Templates.LoadBuildingBlocks
  For Each oTmp In Templates
    If UCase(oTmp.Name) = "BUILDING BLOCKS.DOTX" Then
      Exit For
    End If
  Next oTmp
  If Not oTmp Is Nothing Then
    Set oRng = oTmp.BuildingBlockTypes(wdTypeTables).Categories("Built-in").BuildingBlocks("Basic Table").Insert(Where:=Selection.Range, RichText:=True)
    Set oTbl = oRng.Tables(1)
    oTbl.Cell(1, 1).Range.Text = InputBox("Enter the table title", "TITLE")
    lngRows = InputBox("Enter the number of rows", "ROWS", 1)
    lngCols = InputBox("Enter the number of columns", "COLUMNS", 2)
    oTbl.Cell(2, 1).Split lngRows, lngCols
    oTbl.Style = "Plain Table 1"
  End If
lbl_Exit:
  Exit Sub
End Sub
