Thanks Soupy, but there's no merge cells option anywhere on my Table dropdown. I have Insert Table / Row / Column, then Clear Cells, then Select Cell / Row / Column / Table and lastly Table Format / cell height and width and Cell text alignment! no merge cells anywhere!! still!
Works is the baby brother of Office and the Word Processing packages are different, although they look really similar. It is only at times like this when you want to do something and can't that you find the differences...
I haven't got Works WP on my computer so can't have a look, but it is entirely possible that it just doesn't do cell merging - you may be asking the impossible.
Try using the help to ask how to merge cells in a table and see if it looks confused?
