Starting a Table

Tables can help you present information effectively. PowerPoint uses Microsoft Word Table to insert tables into presentations. When you create a table, you will actually see Word's menus and toolbars appear. Create the table as you would create one in Word. See Chapter 7 for more details.

To start a table:

1.
Click the New Slide button in the Common Tasks palette to start a new slide (Figure 21.22).

In the New Slide dialog box, double-click the Table layout (Figure 21.23) and click OK.
