Creating a Table

Tables can also be used to place text in side-by-side columns. You can create tables that provide two columns, three columns, or any number of columns that you require. Tables are also very useful when you want to display numerical information in a grid layout or information that you want to arrange in rows. A table is a collection of intersecting columns and rows. The block created when a column and a row intersects is often referred to as a cell. The easiest way to create a table on a slide is to use the Table layout. Follow these steps:

  1. Create a new slide or select a slide that you want to format with the Table layout (using the Outline or Slides pane).

  2. Open the task pane (select View, Task Pane).

  3. Select the task pane drop-down arrow and select Slide Layout.

  4. Scroll down through the slide layouts in the task pane, and then click the Title and Table layout. This assigns the Title and Table layout to the current slide (see Figure 8.3).

  5. After you assign the Title and Table layout to the slide, you can set the number of columns and rows for the table. Double-click the Table icon on the slide. The Insert dialog box appears.

  6. Specify the number of columns and rows that you want in the table and then click OK. The table is placed on the slide.

    Figure 8.3. The Table layout enables you to place a table on a slide.
