I'm looking for a way to do the following in Microsoft Word 2016:
I'm looking for a way to make a table (or a border) run for as long as the page is, regardless of the content. It has to fill all the height it can, regardless if it contains one row or a 1000 rows.
On the screenshot above, the (1) is a table that should occupy all the space below it, regardless of the content. The table at the bottom of the page (3) is a table that floats to the bottom automatically. If (1) becomes too large to fit on the page, it will automatically push (3) to the next page. This already works by floating (3) to the bottom of the page.
I've not found a way to make my table (1) occupy the entire height. Maybe I'll need to use something else than a table? In that case, it's very important that it's something that I can put a table into. Because the table that you see in (1) will be auto-generated from user data and needs to stay a table. I can put nearly anything around the table, but it has to remain a table and can be styled anyway that's needed. One side note: I already tried to do a textbox, but the table inside a textbox does not work for my purposes (because this file is edited afterwards via .NET programming).
EDIT: an important side note. The screenshot shows two rows, but after processing this can become any number of rows (2, 3, even 10.000 rows are possible).
Does anyone have any ideas? You won't believe how many hours I've already spent on this issue …
