In Microsoft Word for Windows versions 1.x, if two cells in a table are merged together into another cell by choosing the Table command from the Edit menu and choosing the Merge Cells button, the cell that contains the merged cells cannot be merged with another cell. The Merge Cells button will be dimmed (grayed) in the Edit Table dialog box.
To split previously merged cells, choose Table from the Edit menu and choose the Split Cells button.
In Word for Windows version 2.0, to merge two cells together choose the Merge Cells command from the Table menu. When two cells have been merged together the Merge Cells command will change to Split Cells if you try to merge cells that have already been merged.
To split previously merged cells, choose Split Cells from the Table menu.
This problem was corrected in Word version 6.0 for Windows.
