Creating a Table with the Insert Table Dialog Box
Word or Excel, are covered later in the chapter, in the sections “Using Tables from Word”
and “Integrating Excel Cells into PowerPoint.”)
A table can be part of a content placeholder, or it can be a separate, free-fl oating item. If
the active slide has an available placeholder that can accommodate a table, and there is not
already content in that placeholder, the table is placed in it. Otherwise the table is placed
as an independent object on the slide and is not part of the layout.
Depending on what you want to do with the table, it could be advantageous in some cases to not have the table be
part of the layout. For example, perhaps you want the table to be a certain size and to not change when you apply a
different theme. To ensure that the table is not part of the layout, start with a slide that uses a layout that contains
no table-compatible placeholder, such as Title Only.
Creating a Table with the Insert Table Dialog Box
To create a basic table with a specifi ed number of rows and columns, you can use the Insert
Table dialog box. You can open it in either of two ways (see Figure 8.1):
FIGURE 8.1
Open the Insert Table dialog box from either the Table button’s menu or a content
placeholder.
Click Insert Table.
In a content placeholder, click the Table icon.
On the Insert tab, click Tables
Table
Insert Table.
In the Insert Table dialog box, shown in Figure 8.2, specify a number for rows and columns
and click OK. The table then appears on the slide.
