Creating a Table

Not all data is best presented as a chart. Maybe you need to cross-reference various possibilities and display the possible outcomes, or maybe you really need actual figures to appear instead of just graphical representations of them. In that case, a table may serve your purposes best. PowerPoint allows you to use the powerful Table function that's part of Microsoft Word to create a table right in PowerPoint.

Choose the Table Size

To create a table in PowerPoint, click the Insert Microsoft Word Table button in the toolbar. This brings up the pop-up window in Figure 12.1. As you move your cursor across the blank squares ( you don't have to click and hold), they turn dark. This is how you select how many cells you want to initially appear in your table.
