Chapter 19. Modifying Tables

  • Merge and split cells

    Merge cells to allow text or a figure to span across multiple cells. Cells that have been merged can also be split to return them to their original condition.

  • Format tables

    Text within cells can be edited using the same features for editing body text. In addition, you can add borders and shading to selected cells or to the entire table.

  • Number rows and columns

    Add numbering across rows, down columns, or just to the first column in a table.

  • Split a table into two tables

    Splitting a table allows you to insert text or a heading between rows in a table.

  • Convert a table to text, or text to a table

    A table can be converted to text with cell contents separated by commas, tabs, or a single character. Cell contents can also be converted into one or more paragraphs. Word also makes it easy to convert text into a table.

Tables are one of the easiest yet most productive features in Word 97. They are a feature that everyone seems to find useful. After creating your tables, however, you might find that you want to do some formatting or creative manipulation with them. This chapter explains how.
