Laying Out Your Table
Deleting columns and rows
Go to the (Table Tools) Layout tab and use these techniques to delete
columns and rows:
Deleting columns: Click in the column you want to delete, click the
Delete button, and choose Delete Columns on the drop-down list. Select
more than one column to delete more than one. (You can also right-click
and choose Delete Columns.)
Deleting rows: Click in the row you want to delete, click the Delete
button, and choose Delete Rows. Select more than one row to delete
more than one. (You can also right-click and choose Delete Rows.)

Chapter 4
Pressing the Delete key after you select a column or row deletes the data in
the column or row, not the column or row itself.
Moving columns and rows
Because there is no elegant way to move a column or row, you should move
only one at a time. If you try to move several simultaneously, you open a can
of worms that is best left unopened. To move a column or row:
1. Select the column or row you want to move.
Earlier in this chapter, “Selecting Different Parts of a Table” explains
how to select columns and rows.
2. Right-click in the selection and choose Cut on the shortcut menu.
The column or row is moved to the Clipboard.
3. Insert a new column or row where you want the column or row to be.
Earlier in this chapter, “Inserting columns and rows” explains how.
4. Move the column or row:
Column: Click in the topmost cell in your new column and then click
the Paste button (on the Home tab) or press Ctrl+V.
Row: Click in the first column of the row you inserted and then click
the Paste button (on the Home tab) or press Ctrl+V.
