Hi AtilDev,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion.

The reason for this is, we have added the left padding and right padding values to the table width. So, the cell width is not expected. If you remove the left padding and right padding from the word document, you will get same values as like as expected.
Kindly refer the screenshot for removing the left padding and right padding from the document (Right click the table -> Table properties -> Table ->Option -> Left = 0 and right =0).
 
 


Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Thanks and Regards,
