I want to insert values into the cells of the table in my word file in c# using Microsoft interop and i have used foreach in the below code for dummy number that automatically insert as per the cell position i want to repace with it my own values

in this case what should i try please give a suggestion or a solution for this
Thank You!!

What I have tried:

//Add paragraph with Heading 1 style
               Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Paragraph para1 = document.Content.Paragraphs.Add(ref missing);
               object styleHeading1 = "Heading 1";
               para1.Range.set_Style(ref styleHeading1);
               para1.Range.Text = "1. Number of users Login ";
               para1.Range.Font.Bold = 2;
               para1.Range.Font.Color = WdColor.wdColorBlack;
               Table firstTable = document.Tables.Add(para1.Range, 2, 5, ref missing, ref missing);
firstTable.Borders.Enable = 1;

                foreach (Row row in firstTable.Rows)
                    foreach (Cell cell in row.Cells)
                        //Header row
                        if (cell.RowIndex == 1)
                            cell.Range.Text = "Column " + cell.ColumnIndex.ToString();
                            cell.Range.Font.Bold = 1;
                            //other format properties goes here
                            cell.Range.Font.Name = "verdana";
                            cell.Range.Font.Size = 10;
                            //cell.Range.Font.ColorIndex = WdColorIndex.wdGray25;                            
                            cell.Shading.BackgroundPatternColor = WdColor.wdColorGray25;                      
                            //Center alignment for the Header cells                                           
                            cell.VerticalAlignment = WdCellVerticalAlignment.wdCellAlignVerticalCenter;        
                            cell.Range.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = WdParagraphAlignment.wdAlignParagraphCenter;
                        //Data row
                            cell.Range.Text = (cell.RowIndex - 3 + cell.ColumnIndex).ToString();

Not sure wheter I understand correctly. But you can address a specific Cell by:
firstTable.Rows[1].Cells[1].Range.Text = "My Value for that Cell";
Keep in mind, in office interop the index of a collection starts alway at '1'.

You are welcome. Thanks also.

You just need a set of data (an array or collection) that you want to put in the cells. So replace (cell.RowIndex - 3 + cell.ColumnIndex).ToString() with each item of your data.

Ys it works but for all the cells it's taking the same value for each and very cell means what should i do also for the column names
thank you

Think about what you are trying to achieve here. You need a different value for each cell, so start by collecting all the different values in a collection o b ject. You can then use a simple loop that indexes the valiues as you fill each cell.

Sure !!!Thanks a lot sir
One can address a specific cell directly by row/column index. E.g. like
firstTable.Rows[1].Cells[1].Range.Text = "My Value for that Cell";

Note: Keep in mind that for office interop the index of a collection starts at '1' and ends at 'collectionName.Count'

Just played around more with word interop and found a second (maybe slightly more performant) way how to address a cell of a table:
secondTable.Cell(2, 1).Range.Text = "My 2/1";  // Row 2, Column 1
See here for more details: Table.Cell(Int32, Int32) Method (Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word) | Microsoft Docs[^]
