In v17, we can now get the element id’s, and also select the table objects in a 
document, so that is definitely an improvement.

But, in case there is more than 1 table in the document,  I fail to get a 
reference for the table where the cursor is in… has anyone figured out how to 
do that?

How cool would that be ;-)
