What should I keep in mind before combining two tables into one in Word?
When you have to join two tables you must consider in advance that they may not have the same fill format and font color, so the result may be not very verbose to the reader’s eye.
In case you have different margins in each box, you will have to consider that when joining them they will be different. Therefore, the table that has the lowest margins on its sides will be the one that will be taken as a reference.
If there is a text that is between both tables it will be moved down. In this way you will have to consider that, if within that paragraph, there is information referring to some of the tables, you will have to write it again so that it agrees with the new table.
