Check the settings in the Table Grid style.
Try an "open and repair" on the document.
Select everything in the document except the last paragraph marker and

Use Pure Text or some other format stripping utility to cut the tables
from the document and then paste them back as unformatted text. Convert
the text to a new table.

And always pray that the Table Gods will favor you during the Word
