Hi,

You don't need to create a word document. Simply save the file as .csv instead, or rename it to .csv if you already have it.
CSV stands for comma separated value.
If you open a CSV file with Excel, or OpenOffice, they will read it as a table. The separator between values doesn't have to be a comma, it could be a tab, or whatever, but commas are the way imacros saves data by default.

Many files with data will created not for me....
I need create very much Word Documents with table. Its not the solution of the problem, because created documents will open and edit other man, using program MS Word.

Hi again.
Well, the answer remains that you can not create word documents with imacros.
But I am still wondering why you would use tables in word instead of excel? Because excel can open the file the way i mentioned, directly as a table...
