Why are tables outside the frame of the description field when I copy and paste them from Word?

Why are tables outside the frame of the description field when I copy and paste them from Word?

Problem:

Why are tables outside the frame of the description field when I copy and paste them from Word?

Resolution:


  • Product Name: CaliberRM
  • Product Version: 2005 R2, 2005 R2SP1, 2006
  • Product Component: Description field
  • Platform/OS Version: Windows 2000/2003 server, XP (SP2)

If you have a Table in Word which is larger than the ruler margin at the top of the document then the HTML for the margins is changed. For example, the table below is within the Margins of the ruler:

Table within Ruler in Word

When I paste this into CaliberRM it works fine:

However, when I edit the table in Word, so that the table is outside the ruler margin like so:

Table outside ruler in Word

The resulting copy and paste is reflected in CaliberRM:

Table outside ruler in Caliber


This is as designed. CaliberRM is doing exactly what you are asking it to i.e. paste in a table with left border = “-30.6pt”.

The workaround is to make sure the table is within the ruler margins in Word before copy and pasting into CaliberRM.
