Represents a row in a table. The Row object is a member of the Rows collection. The Rows collection includes all the rows in the specified selection, range, or table.

Use Rows(Index), where Index is the index number, to return a single Row object. The index number represents the position of the row in the selection, range, or table. The following example deletes the first row in the first table in the active document.


Use the Add method to add a row to a table. The following example inserts a row before the first row in the selection.

If Selection.Information(wdWithInTable) = True Then 
 Selection.Rows.Add BeforeRow:=Selection.Rows(1) 
End If

Use the Cells property to modify the individual cells in a Row object. The following example adds a table to the selection and then inserts numbers into each cell in the second row of the table.

Selection.Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseEnd 
If Selection.Information(wdWithInTable) = False Then 
 Set myTable = _ 
 ActiveDocument.Tables.Add(Range:=Selection.Range, _ 
 NumRows:=3, NumColumns:=5) 
 For Each aCell In myTable.Rows(2).Cells 
 i = i + 1 
 aCell.Range.Text = i 
 Next aCell 
End If
