Word Automation - Create Table, Merge Cells

I was pondering a question inside foxite forum about word automation because of the handicap presented by MS that when recording a macro in Word, objects cannot be clicked using mouse.

So the first solution that I can think of is to use keyboard as that is still allowed and that to customize Quick Access Toolbar to include an icon for merging so I can click (and merge cells) for later reviewing of macro recordings.  And this resulted to these codes:

Health Benefits - Super Fruits - Part I

Anyway, that forced me to experiment increasing my intake from that 5mg to the whole 10mg on that day.  And immediately I felt better (plus 1 hour exercise over my stationary bike to sweat out whatever it is that needs to be sweat out).  Although I do not recommend that you guys do an exercise when having an HBP.  Majority cautions against it.
