There's no simple way to do it, IIRC. I once wrote a WordBasic macro
that went through a table cell-by-cell, and for each cell, it selected
the entire cell, then looked whether there was any text in the selected
cell. If there wasn't, it did the specified operation (I don't recall
what it was) and then moved on to the next cell. There was a bit of
trickiness in the loop, because when it reached the end of the table, I
wanted it to look for the next table, and the NextCell command adds
additional rows to the table unless you set up the conditions properly.

I don't seem to have the code anymore, though -- hope this helps!
