Range.TopLevelTables Property (Word)

Returns a Tables collection that represents the tables at the outermost nesting level in the current range. Read-only.

expression .TopLevelTables

expression A variable that represents a Range object.

This method returns a collection containing only those tables at the outermost nesting level within the context of the current range. These tables may not be at the outermost nesting level within the entire set of nested tables.

For information about returning a single member of a collection, see Returning an Object from a Collection.

This example creates a new document, creates a nested table with three levels, and then fills the first cell of each table with its nesting level. The example selects the second column of the second-level table and then selects the first of the top-level tables in this selection. The innermost table is selected, even though it isn't a top-level table within the context of the entire set of nested tables.
