When using Autocaption option in Microsoft Word (as stated here), a extra space is created above tables which has been linked from Excel to Word(for example via Past Special/Past link/HTMl format). Is there a remedy to get away with this extra space?

enter image description here

  • Could you provide a screenshot about this problem? Try to check the line spacing or if you can delete the space.

  • @Lee I have added the screenshot (see the link). As can be seen the extra space (highlighted one) cannot be deleted. (there is no paragraph mark to select and delete it) May 24, 2021 at 9:22

From your image, the spacing is added not by the table, but by the caption.

  1. Place the cursor at "Figure 2".
  2. On the Home tab, select the arrow on the Paragragh section.
  3. On the paragraph window, reduce the After spacing. Press OK
