Hello @Kaushalya Perera,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

When printing or exporting an issue to word, there are some limitations. 

If the table on the description was copied/pasted from another tool like Excel or Google Sheets, it won’t show correctly if there are, for example, merged cells or some other formats that are not supported in Jira. 

If it’s a simple table, without any format, it works, and also, creating a table directly from the editor in Jira will work as expected:

If you have any other questions regarding this matter, please let us know.

Kind regards,

Thanks Angélica for your insightful explanation...
