  • Hi Ahlompys,

    When the table has vertically merged cells, I could reproduce your issue, the row object is null. 

    To work around, I suggest you iterate through table cells and access the last row cells via it's rowindex.  Here is the example for getting  last row cells object into a list.

    List<Word.Cell> lstCell=new List<Cell>();
    foreach (Cell cell in tables[1].Range.Cells)
                    if (cell.RowIndex == tables[1].Rows.Count)

    Best Regards,
