Default Need help, get error message when place tbl....

Hello, Pros,
I'm desprately trying to fix a macro I've created to have every column in a table, from Column 1 (top to bottom), then next column (top to bottom), then next column (top to bottom), etc. place as ONE Column. I've started with 3 columns, to have 1.



Well I keep getting an error message when it wants to pasteAndFormat

What am I doing wrong? Cause when I do step by step (F8), it works.

We need to put the starting cursor in column 1, then use this macro:

HTML Code:
Sub T1fr_Merge_3Col_Vert_as_1_TST_BETTER()
'This macro is to have every Rows, from each column in a table from Left to Right, under each other, as 1 column

'T1fr_Fusionne_3Col_Vert_en_1_sous_TST_BETTER
'  TST_Selection_Col_2n3_Start_Col1_part1 Macro
'
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
'
' Select column l, then go to Column 2
    
    ActiveDocument.Tables(1).Columns(2).Select
    Selection.SelectColumn
    Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdRow, Extend:=True
    Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdColumn, Extend:=True

'Select column 2+3, Cut then paste below table 1
    Selection.Copy
    Selection.Cut
    Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdColumn, Extend:=True
    Selection.MoveDown Unit:=wdLine, Count:=2
    Selection.TypeParagraph
    Selection.TypeParagraph
    Selection.PasteAndFormat (wdFormatOriginalFormatting)
    Selection.MoveUp Unit:=wdLine, Count:=2
    Selection.MoveRight Unit:=wdCell
    Selection.SelectColumn
    Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdColumn, Extend:=True
    
'Select column 3, Cut then paste below table 2
    Selection.Copy
    Selection.Cut
    Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdColumn
    Selection.MoveDown Unit:=wdLine, Count:=2
    Selection.TypeParagraph
    Selection.TypeParagraph
    Selection.PasteAndFormat (wdFormatOriginalFormatting)
    
'  Remove extra paragraph marks to get all tables as 1
    Selection.MoveUp Unit:=wdLine, Count:=1
    Selection.HomeKey Unit:=wdColumn
    Selection.MoveUp Unit:=wdLine, Count:=2
    Selection.Delete Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=2
    
    Selection.MoveUp Unit:=wdLine, Count:=1
    Selection.HomeKey Unit:=wdColumn
    Selection.MoveUp Unit:=wdLine, Count:=2
    Selection.Delete Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=2
    
'Resize the whole table as 1 column, page wide
    Selection.SelectColumn
    Selection.Tables(1).AutoFitBehavior (wdAutoFitContent)
    Selection.Tables(1).AutoFitBehavior (wdAutoFitContent)
    Selection.Tables(1).AutoFitBehavior (wdAutoFitWindow)
    Selection.Tables(1).AutoFitBehavior (wdAutoFitWindow)
    Exit Sub

Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    
    On Error GoTo 0

End Sub
Any insights, please let me know, it's driving me crazy

Perhaps you want something like:
Code:
Sub Demo()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim Rng As Range, r As Long, c As Long
With ActiveDocument.Tables(1)
  For r = .Rows.Count To 1 Step -1
    For c = .Columns.Count To 2 Step -1
      If r = .Rows.Count Then
        .Rows.Add
      Else
        .Rows.Add .Rows(r + 1)
      End If
      Set Rng = .Cell(r, c).Range
      Rng.End = Rng.End - 1
      .Cell(r + 1, 1).Range.FormattedText = Rng.FormattedText
    Next
  Next
  For c = .Columns.Count To 2 Step -1
    .Columns(c).Delete
  Next
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Well, this results is by row in from each column.

I wish to have it by column, as for Column 1, apply all rows, then go to column 2, apply all rows, then so forth. Or else I could have used from Table to Text which would have given me that same result.

That is why is was so challenging for me to find a way, manually to use every row in each columns.

But thank you for trying, Paul. Have another Idea?

That's just a matter of transposing the process:
Code:
Sub Demo()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim Rng As Range, r As Long, c As Long
With ActiveDocument.Tables(1)
  If .Columns.Count * .Rows.Count > 63 Then
    MsgBox "Too many cells - 63 is the maximum supported", vbCritical
    Exit Sub
  End If
  For c = .Columns.Count To 1 Step -1
    For r = .Rows.Count To 2 Step -1
      If c = .Columns.Count Then
        .Columns.Add
      Else
        .Columns.Add .Columns(c + 1)
      End If
      Set Rng = .Cell(r, c).Range
      Rng.End = Rng.End - 1
      .Cell(1, c + 1).Range.FormattedText = Rng.FormattedText
    Next
  Next
  For r = .Rows.Count To 2 Step -1
    .Rows(r).Delete
  Next
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Hummmmm, I'm getting an error message. My system is in French, so I'll try to translate. Execution error 5258. The maximum width has been reached, when I click on Debug, it goes to the row: .Columns.Add

Then I see it transposed to the right on row 1.

I've created another one, with only two columns, It works unless I've used an additional macro to delete empty rows, then I get another error message. Geeeeeze, it's so freaking challenging. Let me get the other macro with two columns. See if we can figure out something.

I had to fix something, sorry for the delay

    Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdColumn, Extend:=True

'Select column 2, Cut then paste below table 1
    Selection.Copy
    Selection.Cut
    Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdColumn, Extend:=True
    Selection.MoveDown Unit:=wdLine, Count:=1

    Selection.Delete Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=1
    Selection.MoveUp Unit:=wdLine, Count:=1
    Selection.Delete Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=1
    
'Resize the whole table as 1 column, page wide
    Selection.Tables(1).Select

That will be because you're adding so many columns that the maximum permissible width is being exceeded. You could try reducing the overall table width or just the widths of the new columns. For example, you might insert:
Code:
.AutoFitBehavior wdAutoFitWindow
before:
Code:
Set Rng = .Cell(r, c).Range

But the thing is that I only had 2 or 3 columns MAX to test this out. I don't understand the maximun width. The only thing I could think of, was I had put AutoFit Window.

I'll see if I modify the script with what you just written

You might have started out with that, but you end up with every cell your table started out with being converted to a column. Thus, if you started with 3 columns and 15 rows, you would end up with 45 columns...

(PS: A Word table cannot have more than 63 columns).

If this is what I was supposed to do, it made it worst:
It transposed a column for every text rows. Hikes

Code:
Sub T1fr_Merge_3Col_Vert_en_1_sous_TST_BETTER2()

'From Forum, created by macropod Paul Edstein 2021-02-17
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim Rng As range, r As Long, c As Long
With ActiveDocument.Tables(1)
  For c = .Columns.Count To 1 Step -1
    For r = .Rows.Count To 2 Step -1
      If c = .Columns.Count Then
        .Columns.Add
      Else
        .Columns.Add .Columns(c + 1)
      End If
      .AutoFitBehavior wdAutoFitWindow
      Set Rng = .cell(r, c).range
      Rng.End = Rng.End - 1
      .cell(1, c + 1).range.FormattedText = Rng.FormattedText
    Next
  Next
  For r = .Rows.Count To 2 Step -1
    .Rows(r).Delete
  Next
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub
First, it gave me another error message:
Execution error 5941
The required Collection member does not exist.
(again, my system is in French, and I'm translating it).

I've done it again, to copy the script error message, now it gave me another error code:
4198, the Command failed

Then under Debug: it went to line: cColumns.Add .Columns(c + 1)

I'm beyond tired now. Going to bed, but it was nice catching up with you

Thanks for trying.

until next time,

Cendrinne

Well, what you said in post #3 was:

which is what it now does. Since there is obviously a communication issue here, perhaps you could attach a document to a post showing 'before' and 'after' views of your table, both views containing some sample data.

Hi Paul,
I was trying to find a way to write this message privately, but I can't.

I don't think I'm aloud to show images, unfortunately. That would mean granting access to my work pc, which I'm not aloud. So I try to be clear. I know as I reread it, it's challenging to really show what I mean at times, plus the language barrior

I truly appologize if I've confused, what I meant, and when I wrote, ''Or else I could have used from Table to Text which would have given me that same result.''

I truly didn't mean it to be disrespectful, if it came out that way.

Thank you for the lesson

Cendrinne

The data don't even have to be 'real' - provided they show what the table should look like 'before' and 'after'.

I get that, but still It would be to grant access to get the images from the work computer. I would have to find a way to do it with my iphone or my other PC, but it's very slow, as it's an older PC.

I'll try to adapt

thanks a million Paul
