Export table horizontally to word using macro

When export to word, the chart properties won’t remain the same in word example, width and height of cell, horizontal chart automatically aligns to vertical, background color will not reflect, table header splits between pages and few more.

In Qlikview we can change the orientation of chart to horizontal, but when export this behavior changes automatically to vertical. This cannot be controlled within chart properties.

This blog discuss about converting Vertical table to horizontal in word.

'Passing chart Object ID

Sub converttablehorizontal


End Sub

'Main macro

FUNCTION PasteTranspose (ChartObjectId)

set obj = ActiveDocument.GetSheetObject(ChartObjectId )

'Getting row and column count of the table

                                  w = obj.GetColumnCount
If obj.GetRowCount>1001 then

end if

objWord.Visible = false

Set objRange = objDoc.Range()
objDoc.Tables.Add objRange,w,h
Set objTable = objDoc.Tables(1)

'To show table grid based of w,h

  objTable.AutoFormat(16) 'to show table grid
