Type the number of rows you want in the table.

INTRODUCTION

A table is a great way to organize data, especially data suited for multiple columns and rows. PowerPoint tables are composed of intersecting columns and rows that form cells. Cells commonly hold text, but can also hold pictures or clip-art images. The easiest way to add a table is to choose a slide layout that includes a table object.


TIP

Finding a Table Layout

Under the category Other Layouts in the Slide Layout pane, you can find a layout that includes a title and a table. Many of the other layouts include the versatile object menu that allows you to add different slide objects.


PowerPoint creates the table and displays the Tables and Borders toolbar.

Click inside a table cell and start typing to add text to the table. You can press the Tab key to move from cell to cell.
