I would appreciate help with the following: a customer of mine uses one table per page in Word documents. If I "Select all" or crtl+A, I end up selecting one table. How do I select the entire document (in order to do a "replace all, for example).

Many thanks in advance.

If there aren't many tables, you can do this. Apr 8, 2010

This page explains how to select multiple tables using the Ctrl key + four headed arrow icon method. I know it also works with previous versions of Word.

If you have a 100 page documents, it's better to write a macro to loop through the document, though.

Good luck
Rie

Thanks, Rie. I tried it, but it does not work, at least in MS 2003. Regards.
