Hi Luiz,

This will do what you want (either In[7] or In[8]):

In[1]:=
t1 = Table[{x[1, 1], x[1, 2], y}, {x[1, 1], 1, 3}, {x[1, 2], 1, 3}]

Out[1]=
{{{1, 1, y}, {1, 2, y}, {1, 3, y}}, {{2, 1, y}, {2, 2, y}, {2, 3, y}},
{{3, 1, y}, {3, 2, y}, {3, 3, y}}}

In[2]:=
ni = 1; nj = 2;
a = Flatten[Table[x[i, j], {i, 1, ni}, {j, 1, nj}]];
d = Dimensions[a][[1]];
b = {}; Do[b = Append[b, {a[[i]], 1, 3}], {i, 1, d}];
args = Join[{Append[a, y]}, b];

In[7]:=
t2 = Table[args[[1]], Evaluate[args[[2]]], Evaluate[args[[3]]]]

Out[7]=
{{{1, 1, y}, {1, 2, y}, {1, 3, y}}, {{2, 1, y}, {2, 2, y}, {2, 3, y}},
{{3, 1, y}, {3, 2, y}, {3, 3, y}}}

In[8]:=
t3 = Table[Append[a, y], Evaluate[b[[1]]], Evaluate[b[[2]]]]

Out[8]=
{{{1, 1, y}, {1, 2, y}, {1, 3, y}}, {{2, 1, y}, {2, 2, y}, {2, 3, y}},
{{3, 1, y}, {3, 2, y}, {3, 3, y}}}

In[9]:=
{t3 == t1, t2 == t1}

Out[9]=
{True, True}
