Chapter 5. Creating Tables > Adding and Deleting Rows and Columns

Adding and Deleting Rows and Columns

After inserting your table initially into the document, you may decide you want to change the number of columns and rows your table has. If you were hand coding, this could end up being a nightmare, but with Dreamweaver it's a breeze.

The way you add and delete columns is very similar. Suppose, for example, you wanted to add an additional row or column. One thing you could do is select the table and in the Properties Inspector, type in a new value for how many rows and columns you want. This automatically adds the amount of rows you wanted to the bottom of the table and the amount of columns to the right of the table. If you had an extra row or column at either the bottom or right side of the table, all you have to do is decrease the number of rows and columns by the extra number and they'll automatically be removed. Well, this is great—but what if the columns and rows you wanted to add weren't at the bottom or right of the table; what if you wanted to add a column straight down the middle of the table? Fear not, the process is just as easy.
