Chapter 9. Tables > Nesting One Table in Another

Nesting One Table in Another

In some circumstances, you'll need to put one table inside another. For instance, in our example, we want to insert the multicolumn text table with cell spacing into a table that has no spacing between the columns.

To nest one table in another:

1.
Create the inner table.

2.
Create the outer table. Determine which cell of the outer table will hold the inner table and type placeholder (or some other easily identifiable text) there as a placeholder.

3.
Test both tables separately to make sure they look the way you want them to.

4.
Replace the word placeholder with the inner table by copying and pasting.
