Lesson 18. Using Word Tables > Formatting a Table

Formatting a Table

Formatting a table can involve several things—you can change the width of a column or the height of a row and can also format the various table borders with different line weights or colors. Some of the table attributes can be modified directly on the table, but other attributes are best handled by modifying settings in the Table Properties dialog box or by using the AutoFormat dialog box.

Modifying Cell Size

An important aspect of working with your rows and columns is adjusting column widths and row heights to fit the needs of the information that you place inside the table cells. Both of these formatting tasks are mouse work. However, in cases where you want to enter an actual value for all the column widths or row heights, you can use the Table Properties dialog box discussed in this section.
