Select Text Table Columns

Hopefully a simple question, but I cannot seem to find an answer in the documentation or online:

I want to be able to select particular rows/columns within Writer document text tables.

In theory the macro should look something like this:

sub test

Doc = ThisComponent
Col = Doc.getTextTables(0).getColumns.getbyindex(3)
Doc.CurrentController.Select(Col)   

end sub

However, I am currently getting a BASIC runtime error:

Property or method not found: getColumns.

(Same goes for 'getRows')

The command seems to work if I create a table from scratch, but will not work on existing tables??

Thanks in advance!
