Table Delete Columns Table 1 2 3 Figure 10-9. Inserting a cell into a table Figure 10-10. Shifting cells to the right when inserting a cell 1. Shift Cells Right. This option inserts a new cell to the left of whatever cell holds the insertion point or whatever range of cells is selected when the Insert Cells command is issued. Existing cells are moved to the right to accommodate the new cell. Figure 10-10 shows a table in which cells shifting to the right caused a cell to move outside the boundary of the table. Selecting a block of cells in a column would move cells in that many columns to the right. Selecting a block of cells in a row would insert the same number of cells and move existing cells to the right. If an entire column is selected, this command works the same as the Table Insert Columns to the Left command. 2. Shift cells down. This is the default option. It inserts a new cell above whatever cell holds the insertion point or whatever range of cells is selected when the Insert Cells command is issued. Unlike the Shift Cells Right option, cells shifted downwards cannot extend past the lower boundary of the table. Word fills out any new rows that would be created. 3. Insert entire row (or column). These options work the same as the Columns to the Right and Columns to the Left commands available on the Table menu, covered previously. Table Delete Table Delete an active table using the Table Delete Table command. The deletion applies to the entire table, including any tables nested inside the table.
