The output tables usually need to be manually modified for a better appearance. However, the gridlines of tables output by asdocx cannot be displayed. For example, when a table is selected, ‘view gridlines’ does not work. Also, when several columns are selected, ‘distribute columns evenly’ label is missing too. It seems the tables output by asdocx is different from ‘normal’ tables. Is there a way to make the tables more friendly?
asdocx creates regular tables in MS Word. There is nothing peculiar about the way asdocx creates these tables. If you want to see how the table looks like with all borders visible, you may click on the table handle (as shown below with yellow color) inside Word, the Table Designtab will appear. Under the Borders group, click on borders and select all borders.
As shown in the following picture, asdocx table has one merged row for table title at the top of the table, and one merged row for tables notes at the bottom of the table. Rest of the table can be viewed and modified as desired.
