  • Hi Sami,

    Did you want to insert the text into the specific row and column in a table? If I understood correctly, we can pass the '' and 'startColumn' to achieve the goal.

    Here is an sample to insert into the text into 3rd row and 2nd column for your reference:

     Office.context.document.bindings.getByIdAsync("table1", function (asyncResult) {
                if (asyncResult.status == "succeeded") {
                    var myTable = new Office.TableData();
                    myTable.rows = ['Hao']
                    asyncResult.value.setDataAsync(myTable, { startRow: 1 , startColumn: 1 }, function (asyncResult) {

    You can get more detail about this methoed from link below:
    Binding.setDataAsync method
