Hour 15. Columns and Tables > Changing the Structure of a Table

Changing the Structure of a Table

As you enter text in a table, you will almost certainly need to change its structure. Here you learn the most common adjustments that you'll need to make. As you experiment with these techniques, keep in mind that Word does not prevent you from making a table too wide to fit on the page. If you're adding columns and increasing column widths, check periodically to make sure that the table isn't running off the page. (You have to check in Print Layout view or Print Preview—Normal view won't do the trick.)

Most of the commands in the Table menu are active only when the insertion point is in a table. If you notice that the commands are dim, it's a sign that you accidentally clicked outside the table. Click inside the table and then display the Table menu again.
