docx table extra vertical space RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to create a word document using the openxml formats sdk 2.0 and I am able to generate the table and fill it in with content, but I need to remove the extra space in the table.  I have been trying hideMark, but that doesn't seem to be working.

    Here is a small block of text to show what I am doing.  If anyone can help I would appreciate it.

            Dim document As DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Packaging.WordprocessingDocument = _
            WordprocessingDocument.Create("C:\tabletest.docx", _
            Dim mainDocumentPart As MainDocumentPart = document.AddMainDocumentPart()
            mainDocumentPart.Document = New Document()
            Dim documentBody As New Body()
            Dim titleParagraphe As New Paragraph()
            Dim titleRun As New Run()
            Dim titleText As New Text("Testing the hidemark table cell property")
            documentBody.Append(New Paragraph(New Run(New Text(" "))))

  • turned out that my problem with not with hidemark at all.  I solved my problem by adding SpacingBetweenLines class to the paragraph properties for each paragraph in each table cell.  The table looks great now.
