Lesson 9. Creating Tables > Importing and formatting a table

Importing and formatting a table

If you’ve worked with tables before, you already know that tables are grids of individual cells set in rows (horizontal) and columns (vertical). The border of the table is a stroke that lies on the outside perimeter of the entire table. Cell strokes are lines within the table that set the individual cells apart from each other. Many tables include special rows or columns that describe the category of information they contain. Typically, these are in the top row or the first column.

InDesign CS2 can import tables from other applications, including Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel. In this section, you’ll import a table that was created in Word. This table contains all the information about the garden tour that you want in your InDesign layout, organized into rows and columns.
