I have some 1000+ tables in ms word, table has 2 columns. some tables have the 2 columns merged
Is it possible to batch swap the columns content ?
Thank you!

example convert 1000 tables with this layout:
[cpp]
Car | Top Speed
--------------------------------------
Mustang | 100
Gt-500 | 120
Volvo | 90
sometimes a row can be merged
Toyota | 685
Lexus | 54
[/cpp]


to be :
[cpp]
Top Speed | Car
--------------------------------------
100 | Mustang
120 | Gt-500
90 | Volvo
sometimes a row can be merged
685 | Toyota
54 | Lexus
[/cpp]

Thank you!
I tried copy to excel, once I copy - no way back since its text, tables, pictures and other elements..
After reading on the web - I think I need VB for word...
Identify the table programmatically - then swap columns..
I am still researching this…
