Changing the Table Layout
Positioning a Table
In much the same way that a picture or other graphic can be positioned in the normal low
of text (in line) or placed on the page so that text wraps around it, you can specify text
wrapping options for a table. To control a table’s position on the page, on the Layout tab
click Properties in the Table group. In the Table Properties dialog box, shown in Figure 8-10,
click the Table tab, where you can set alignment options and set an indent from the left
Figure 8-10 To low text around the table, under Text Wrapping click Around, and then click
Positioning to specify placement options.
As an alternative to the dialog box routine, point to the upper left corner of the table.
When the mouse pointer turns into a four-headed arrow, drag the table to the position you
want. To adjust text wrapping options, you’ll need to visit the Table Positioning dialog box.
