Hi Alicia,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

Yes, you can remove a table (WTable) from Word document using DocIO. Please find the code snippet to remove tables.
            // If input Word document have multiple section
            //Then you could iterate each section and remove the tables.
            WTextBody body = document.Section[0].Body;
for (int index = 0; index < body.ChildEntities.Count; index++)
if (body.ChildEntities[index] is WTable)

Also, we have prepared demo sample to remove tables from existing Word document. Please find the sample from here and let us know if it helps.
