Using Quick Tables
Outlook’s Quick Tables feature lets you save tables you have created to a gallery. You can then
insert the saved table into a message with a few clicks. A Quick Table is one of Outlook’s building
blocks , a feature that lets you save not only tables but sections of text and other message
components for reuse.
Saving a Quick Table
To save a table as a Quick Table you must first create the table and apply all the formatting that you
want saved with it, such as borders, shading, and column headers. Any data in a table is saved too,
so you probably want to save the table before you add the data. Then:
Select the entire table by dragging over it with the mouse.
Click the Table button on the Insert ribbon.
Select the Quick Tables command from the Insert Table menu, then select Save Selection
to Quick Tables Gallery from the next menu. Outlook displays the Create New Building
Block dialog box as shown in Figure 6.25.
Enter a name for the saved table in the Name box.
Select the category for the table from the Category list, or select Create New Category to
create a new category.
