Creating a Table

A table organizes information neatly into rows and columns. The intersection of a row and a column is called a cell. You can draw a custom table with various sized cells and then enter text, or you can create a table from existing text separated by paragraphs, tabs, or commas. In addition, now you can create nested tables (a table created within a table cell), floating tables (tables with text wrapped around them), or side-by-side tables (separate but adjacent tables). If you decide not to use a table, you can convert it to text.

Draw a Custom Table

Click the View menu, point to Toolbars, and then click Tables And Borders.

Click the Draw Table button on the Tables And Borders toolbar to select it.

Draw the table.

  • A rectangle creates individual cells or the table boundaries.

  • Horizontal lines create rows.

  • Vertical lines create columns.

  • Diagonal lines split cells.

If necessary, press and hold Shift, and then click one or more lines to erase them.
