Awesome, thanks for this tutorial @rampprakash kind regards 👋

Thanks for this, @rampprakash . 

 

I don't get the population of the table right, though. In fact, the table doesn't get included at all in the Word document. Sp for Step 14: how to set the properties of the table? Or could there be any other step I have missed...?
