  • Refer to the cell by its location in the table, add text to the cell, and apply the formatting.

    Word.Cell cell = this.Tables[1].Cell(1, 1);
    
    cell.Range.Text = "Name"; 
    cell.Range.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = Word.WdParagraphAlignment.wdAlignParagraphRight;
    

    The following code example can be used in an application-level add-in. This example uses the active document. To use the example, run it from the ThisAddIn class in your project.

    Word.Cell cell = this.Application.ActiveDocument.Tables[1].Cell(1, 1);
    
    cell.Range.Text = "Name";
    cell.Range.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = 
        Word.WdParagraphAlignment.wdAlignParagraphRight;
