You can use Table.AutoFit as shown below to get the desired output. Hope this helps you.

foreach (Table table in doc.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Table, true))
doc.Save(MyDir + "output.docx");

Thanks for your help.

We have tested the scenario and have managed to reproduce the same issue at our side. For the sake of correction, we have logged this problem in our issue tracking system as WORDSNET-20838 . You will be notified via this forum thread once this issue is resolved.

Is there workaround for this scenario?


Unfortunately, there is no workaround available for this issue.

You do not normally need to call UpdateTableLayout method. You can call this method before exporting to PDF (or any other fixed-page format), only in rare cases where you confirmed that tables appear incorrectly laid out in the output document.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as WORDSNET-20838) have been fixed in this Aspose.Words for .NET 23.7 update also available on NuGet.
