B4J Question jPOI for Tables in Word

Dear Community,

have a Question about missing depencies, see the little Example.
Want to add a new Grid in a Table in a Word XDoc with jPOI, based on Erels
https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/jpoi-to-the-rescue.104082/#content.

I copied all the .jars correctly. (All other things are working, except the CT-Table XML things.)
Tried also to reference and add the poi-ooxml-schemas-4.1.1.jar and XMLBeans.jar "manually", but the same error.
Any ideas?

Can you post the error message as it will make It easier to work out what is missing.
Ignore that I just spotted the spoiler at the bottom.

Changed the Java Part, because 1st Version was just working with OpenOffice, this one works also with MS-Word!:rolleyes:

I did it with Erel's Hint:
Here is the snip for others who want do some similar: (here: set the Columns Width for a Table in docx Documents)
Requires jPOI Lib
