The client I'm working with is avoiding using tables in Word docs they plan to import in to RoboHelp because of bad experiences in RH7, so I haven't tried it in RH8. Just a thought; not sure if it will work - Can you get the table to look as you want by applying a Table style in RH after the import?
Both try this, may or may not work, depends on the document.
Create a new project and import the Word document.
Click in a table and go to Table > Table Style and select the table to be applied. Make sure you tick the Clean Styles option.

Hi, thanks for the suggestion, but no it didn't work. I tried a sample doc and I have the problem of missing text at the end of the line in the table, when: I import a table with a table style and when I import one without a table style, when I tick Clean Styles and when I don't, and finally, both when I expand the table after I import it to RH and when I don't.
As I had said, the text hangs off the cells of the table only in the Web Help, while in the CHM, my efforts to expand the table to 100%, expanded the table nicely, but the text does not spread out to the extended width of the table.
Any ideas? TIA.
