Chapter 14. Tables > Combining Tables

Combining Tables

For more complex layouts, you may wish to combine tables. You can place combinations of tables and text in another table, you can nest tables within a specific cell of a larger table, or you can use multiple tables.

To nest one table in another

1.
Create the inner table and any text or other elements that should accompany it.

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 content by copying and pasting.
