In Excel, there is no way that can merge cells in a table, but here I introduce a roundabout trick for you to merge cells in a table.

Select the table, the go to the Design tab, click Convert to Range, and then click Yes in the popping dialog to convert the table to a range which also looks like a table. See screenshot:

Then select the cells you want to merge, click Home > Merge & Center, and click OK in the popping out warning dialog. See screenshot:

      Hi, thank u for your message, I am sorry to tell you that the Merge Same Cells and Unmerge Cell utilities cannot apply in table, you can right click at the table, then click Table > Convert to range in the context menu to convert the table to range cells first, then apply the Merge Same Cells or Unmerge Cell utilties. Or you can copy the table and paste as value, then apply the utilities. Wish it is helpful.
