Inserting a Table

A table organizes information neatly into rows and columns. The intersection of a column and row is called a cell. You enter text into cells just as you would anywhere else in PowerPoint, except that pressing the Tab key moves you from one cell to the next. PowerPoint tables behave much like tables in Word. After you create a table or begin to enter text in one, you can use the Tables and Borders toolbar to add more rows or columns, align cell contents, and format the table.

Insert a Table Quickly

In Normal or Slide view, display the slide to which you want to add a table.

Click the Insert Table button on the Standard toolbar.

Drag to select the number of rows and columns you want.

Release the mouse button to insert a blank table. Press Esc to cancel the selection.
