If, instead of inserting rows, you wanted to insert a column in a table, you would
perform the following steps.
1. Position the insertion point in the column to the left or right of where you want to
insert the column.
2. Click the Insert Columns to the Left button (Table Tools Layout tab | Rows &
Columns group) to insert a column to the left of the current column, or click the Insert
Columns to the Right button (Table Tools Layout tab | Rows & Columns group) to
insert a column to the right of the current column. Or you could right-click the table,
point to Insert on the shortcut menu, and click Insert Columns to the Left or Insert
Columns to the Right on the Insert submenu.
Moving Tables
If you wanted to move a
table to a new location,
you would point to the
upper-left corner of the
table until the table move
handle appears (shown
in Figure 3 – 69), point to
the table move handle,
and the drag it to move
the entire table to a new
location.
Deleting Table Data
If you want to delete row(s) or delete column(s) from a table, position the insertion
point in the row(s) or column(s) to delete, click the Delete button (Table Tools Layout tab |
Rows & Columns group), and then click Delete Rows or Delete Columns on the Delete
menu. Or, select the row or column to delete, right-click the selection, and then click
Delete Rows or Delete Columns on the shortcut menu.
To delete the contents of a cell, select the cell contents and then press the delete
or backspace key. You also can drag and drop or cut and paste the contents of cells. To
delete an entire table, select the table, click the Delete button (Table Tools Layout tab |
Rows & Columns group), and then click Delete Table on the Delete menu. To delete the
contents of a table and leave an empty table, you would select the table and then press the
delete key.
To Merge Cells
The top row of the table is to contain the table title, which should be centered above the columns of the table.
The row just inserted has one cell for each column, in this case, i ve cells (shown in Figure 3– 70). The title of the
table, however, should be in a single cell that spans all rows. Thus, the following steps merge the i ve cells into a
single cell.
