Chapter 39. Publisher Essentials > Using Tables As a Page Layout Tool

Using Tables As a Page Layout Tool

Tables are useful for laying out text in a grid formed by intersecting columns and rows. When you type text into a table cell, it wraps within that cell and stays separate from text in the cells above, below, and to its left and right. If you're accustomed to using tables in Word documents, you'll have to adjust to a few differences when working with Publisher publications. For example, in Microsoft Word you can embed an inline image inside a table cell and it will travel with the table. Using inline images is not an option in Publisher.

Creating a Table

To add a table to your publication, click the Insert Table button on the Objects toolbar or choose Table, Insert, Table to open the Insert Table dialog box. Select the number of rows and columns for your table, choose a table format, and click OK. The list of ready-made formats includes several special-purpose arrangements for displaying numbers and some designed for use in a table of contents. If you create a table and later change your mind about its formatting, you can choose one of the other options easily: Click to select the table, and then choose Table, AutoFormat. This list is identical to the one in the Create Table dialog box.
