Microsoft Word offers a number of ways to make a table. The best way depends on how you like to work, and on how simple or complex the table needs to be.
You can also do any of the following:
Use the Insert Table command
Click where you want to create a table.
On the Table menu, point to Insert, and then click Table.
Under Table size, select the number of columns and rows.
Under AutoFit behavior, choose options to adjust table size.
To use a built-in table format, click AutoFormat.
Select the options you want.
Draw a more complex table
You can draw a complex table — for example, one that contains cells of different heights or a varying number of columns per row.
The Tables and Borders toolbar appears, and the pointer changes to a pencil.
Note Hold down CTRL to automatically apply text wrapping while you draw the table.
Some parts of a table can only be seen if you display all formatting marks by clicking Show/Hide on the Standard toolbar.
- A cell
- Click the left edge of the cell.
- A row
- Click to the left of the row.
- A column
- Click the column's top gridline or border.
- Multiple cells, rows, or columns
- Drag across the cell, row, or column.
- Or select multiple items that are not necessarily in order. Click the first cell, row, or column you want, press CTRL, and then click the next cells, rows, or columns you want.
- Text in the next cell
- Press TAB.
- Text in the previous cell
- Press SHIFT+TAB
- The entire table
- Click the table move handle, or drag over the entire table.
Note You can also select rows, columns, or the entire table by clicking in the table and then using the Select commands on the Table menu, or by using keyboard shortcuts.
