Default Alignment of Tables in Word

I know there may be better ways / programs to do this, but we use Word to create a certificate for our customers.


In this Word document, we have three Table sections.

The top and bottom section contains text and values that do not change or change the alignment of the cells.
But here's the problem...

The middle Table contains variable data, on several rows.
Depending on the customer, this can vary from two up to ten rows.
The template we use is for the maximum amount of data, so ten rows.
If we only need three rows, we delete 7 rows.
But if we delete these rows, the bottom table moves up which messes up the complete alignment of the document.

It's not workable for us to use different documents, each with the required number of rows.

It's also not preferable that when deleting the unnecessary rows, we manually adjust the middle and bottom Tables by hand.

Is there a simple way to lock the top and bottom Tables in the document, and have the middle Table adjust automatically according to the number of rows so the middle table always get centred between the top and bottom Tables?

I have attached a sample of the document I'm reffering to, so hopefully this is helpfull.

Many thanks in advance for any help or suggestions in this! Much apriciated!

I would personally put the whole of the first table in the page header, and the whole of the third table in the page footer.

Hmmm... That I din't think of that before.
I'll try that to see if that might be a solution or not, thanks!

I would be tempted to create a primary, larger table, into which you will be placing your three existing tables. Make sure you make the primary table set not to adjust based on the contents.

You can then center the middle table within the middle table of the primary table (tables within the table), I think.

We ended up doing something like this, with a three column table across a large sheet of ledger paper. The left-most cell of that table houses a smaller table with lots of very intricate cells. The middle cell contains running text, and the third usually contains a photo and a photo caption.

Best of luck,

Ann
