Hey there,
I searched the first two pages for an answer but it seems a little too particular of a problem


I am trying to create a VBA macro that copies tables from an excel worksheet and pastes it into a word document
I run into two problems:
1. I don't know how to refer to the end of the document in the Paste Table into MS Word section
VBA Code:
'Paste Table into MS Word
  myDoc.Paragraphs(271).Range.PasteExcelTable _
    LinkedToExcel:=False, _
    WordFormatting:=False, _
    RTF:=False

2. For some unknown reason the code just stops after this part and won't complete the last three functions
VBA Code:
'the code stops here for some reason
'Autofit Table so it fits inside Word Document
  Set WordTable = myDoc.Tables(1)
  WordTable.AutoFitBehavior (wdAutoFitWindow)
  
EndRoutine:
'Optimize Code
  Application.ScreenUpdating = True
  Application.EnableEvents = True

'Clear The Clipboard
  Application.CutCopyMode = False

Here's the whole thing for you to review
Thanks in advance!

VBA Code:
Sub Block3()

'PURPOSE: Copy/Paste An Excel Table Into a New Word Document
'NOTE: Must have Word Object Library Active in Order to Run _
  (VBE > Tools > References > Microsoft Word 12.0 Object Library)
'SOURCE: www.TheSpreadsheetGuru.com

Dim tbl As Excel.Range
Dim WordApp As Word.Application
Dim myDoc As Word.Document
Dim WordTable As Word.Table


'Optimize Code
  Application.ScreenUpdating = False
  Application.EnableEvents = False

'Copy Range from Excel
  Set tbl = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("ôìè ãéååçéí").ListObjects("Table1").Range

'Create an Instance of MS Word
  On Error Resume Next
    
    'Is MS Word already opened?
      Set WordApp = GetObject(class:="Word.Application")
    
    'Clear the error between errors
      Err.Clear

    'If MS Word is not already open then open MS Word
      If WordApp Is Nothing Then Set WordApp = CreateObject(class:="Word.Application")
    
    'Handle if the Word Application is not found
      If Err.Number = 429 Then
        MsgBox "Microsoft Word could not be found, aborting."
        GoTo EndRoutine
      End If

  On Error GoTo 0
  
'Make MS Word Visible and Active
  WordApp.Visible = True
  WordApp.Activate
    
'Find the Word document
  Set myDoc = WordApp.Documents.Open("C:\Users\User\Desktop\îà÷øå èáìàåú ãéååç ìååøã\ãéååçéí\1.docx")
  
'Create new page
    WordApp.ActiveDocument.Sections.Add
    WordApp.Selection.GoTo what:=wdGoToPage, which:=wdGoToNext
  
'Copy Excel Table Range
  tbl.Copy

'Paste Table into MS Word
  myDoc.Paragraphs(271).Range.PasteExcelTable _
    LinkedToExcel:=False, _
    WordFormatting:=False, _
    RTF:=False

'the code stops here for some reason
'Autofit Table so it fits inside Word Document
  Set WordTable = myDoc.Tables(1)
  WordTable.AutoFitBehavior (wdAutoFitWindow)
  
EndRoutine:
'Optimize Code
  Application.ScreenUpdating = True
  Application.EnableEvents = True

'Clear The Clipboard
  Application.CutCopyMode = False

End Sub

1. I don't know how to refer to the end of the document in the Paste Table into MS Word section
Try using wdGoToLast:
VBA Code:
WordApp.Selection.GoTo what:=wdGoToPage, which:=wdGoToLast

And then use the Selection object again to paste:
VBA Code:
  WordApp.Selection.PasteExcelTable _
    LinkedToExcel:=False, _
    WordFormatting:=False, _
    RTF:=False
