Chapter 7. Creating Tables > Merging and Splitting Cells

Merging and Splitting Cells

Using the Merge Cells command, you can combine two or more adjacent cells into a single cell (to create extended column or row headings, for example). Similarly, you can use the Split Cells command to split a single cell into multiple cells. Split Cells is also useful for restoring previously merged cells to their original multi-cell structure.

To merge cells

1.
Select adjacent cells to be merged (Figure 7.20).

Figure 7.20. Select the cells you want to merge (in this case, the top row) and then click the Merge Cells icon.


2.
Choose Table > Merge Cells or click the Merge Cells icon on the Tables and Borders toolbar (see Figure 7.7).

The cells merge (Figure 7.21).
