Inserting Rows and Columns in a Table
Inserting Rows and Columns in a Table
You will often need to modify a table structure by adding or deleting rows and columns.
To insert a column, fi rst click anywhere in the column to the left or right of the location
where you want to insert a new column, and then click either the Insert Left or Insert
Right button in the Rows & Columns group on the Table Tools Layout tab. Inserting a row
is similar to inserting a column. First, click anywhere in a row above or below where
you want to insert the new row, and then, in the Rows & Columns group, click either the
Insert Above button or the Insert Below button.
To insert a column in the table:
1. Click any cell in the Item column.
2. In the Rows & Columns group, click the Insert Right button. A new, blank column
is inserted to the right of the Item column. The three columns in the table are
narrower than the original two columns; the overall width of the table does not change.
3. Click in the top cell of the new column, and enter the following header and data.
Use the key to move the insertion point down through the column.
Labor Cost
$3,500 to $5,000
$3,000 to $4,000
When you are finished, your table should look like the one in Figure 3-13. Because
you selected the entire header row when you formatted the original headers in
bold, the newly inserted header, “Labor Cost,” is also formatted in bold.

Robin just learned that the costs listed for weather stripping actually cover both
weather stripping and insulation. Therefore, she would like you to delete the Insulation
row from the table.
