Thanks for the details. We will keep you posted on further updates.



Please upgrade to the latest version of Aspose.Words for .NET i.e. 19.1. The table cell merging is now available through using the newly added cellMerge tags. The “Merging Table Cells Dynamically” section of the documentation of LINQ Reporting Engine was added to describe the change.
