The difference between old and newer confused me

When I used the new version 22.11 to operate the tables in the Office. Word 2007 document, I found that there were differences between the new version and the old version.

Use the new version to delete all rows of the table, and then save it as a file. When you open it using Office, you will be prompted that the file is damaged and cannot be opened.

If I execute the Document.Save method twice in the code, the Word document can be opened normally.

I won’t have the same code in the old version 20.12. However, this problem will not occur when working with documents in Office. Word 2016.

@wengyeung Could you please attach your input and output documents here for testing along with code that will allow us to reproduce the problem? We will check the issue and provide you more information.

I have tested with a simple code like the following:

Document doc = new Document(@"C:\Temp\in.docx");

Table table = (Table)doc.GetChild(NodeType.Table, 0, true);


And the output document is valid.
