Maybe try:

activedocument.Tables.Count

But if you have a table inside of a table, I don't believe it will count that as 2. Not sure what you need?

Hope that helps.

To include nested tables:
Code:
Sub Test()
Dim oTbl As Table, oCell As Cell, i As Integer
With ActiveDocument
   i = .Tables.Count
  For Each oTbl In .Tables
    For Each oCell In oTbl.Range.Cells
      i = i + oCell.Tables.Count
    Next
  Next
End With
MsgBox "This document contains " & i & " Table(s)."
End Sub
Note: this code will not find tables in headers, footers, shapes (eg text boxes), etc. For that, you need to loop through all storyranges in the document.
