So I have <HTML> form I  am converting to docx with a table that has some cells aligned right <td style="text-align:right;">.

I didn't want the table to drop individual rows to another page as other parts of the form grew, so I added the table within an table and gave the parent table value: "page-break-inside: avoid;".
Now however the text-alignments are no longer working. I have tried style="float: right; text-align: right;" and the <td> value of align="right". None of them works now that the table is within another table.

Is there a way to either have one table that doesn't drop individual rows onto next page, but the whole content within the table?
OR
Is there a way to force the <td style="text-align:right"> to cells within table inside another table?

Hello,

UPDATE:

Prevent break tables using addTable

Prevent break tables using HTML

 

MS Word doesn't include an option to keep tables on single pages (https://word.tips.net/T000865_Keeping_Table_Rows_Together.html). You can get a similar behavior using keep lines (page-break-after: avoid;) and keep next (page-break-inline: avoid;) styles, but they are only available for paragraphs. So you should add paragraphs for each cell and then apply these keep styles.

DOCXPath and DOCXCustomizer can be helpful to modify tables an apply that kind of styles after the HTML to DOCX conversion has been completed, but they are only available in Advanced (DOCXPath) and Premium (DOCPath and DOCXCustomizer) licenses.

About your question, sorry but there's no way to force a text-align to ceels within table inside another table.

Regards.
