    Hi,
    This would be great if it worked for me! I've got a 13 page document with a 7 page table in a frame. I can't get this to work. I get run time error 4605. When I choose debug, it says the line frm.Delete is the problem.
    Any idea what my problem is? I'd really rather not have to reconstruct this table.
    How do tables get stuck in frames anyway? It makes the table difficult to work with and doesn't seem to serve any purpose.
    Thanks so much,

      I've had frames popping up into my documents for the last several weeks, just randomly. The template that my documents are based off do not use frames, but somehow they're showing up. I'm trying to run this macro but continue to get an error if there is any text in between the different frames. Anyone know why? Either why they're now showing up or why the code won't work?
