Deleting Rows and Columns
When you consider deleting a row, you need to be clear about whether you want to
delete the contents of the row, or the contents and the structure of the row. You can
delete the contents of a row by selecting the row and pressing the Delete key. This
removes the information from the row, but leaves the row structure intact. The same
is true for deleting the contents of an individual cell, a column, or the entire table. To
delete the structure of a row, column, or the entire table—including its contents—you
select the row (or column or the entire table) and then use the Delete button in the Rows
& Columns group. To delete multiple rows or columns, start by selecting all the rows or
columns you want to delete.
Before you delete the Insulation row, you need to edit the contents in the last cell
in the fi rst column to indicate that the items in that row are for weather stripping and
To delete the Insulation row:
1. In the cell containing the text “Weather stripping,” click to the right of the “g,”
press the spacebar , and then type and insulation . The cell now reads “Weather
stripping and insulation.” Part of the text wraps to a second line within the cell.
Next, you can delete the Insulation row, which is no longer necessary.
2. Select the Insulation row by clicking to the left of the row in the left margin.
3. In the Rows & Columns group on the Layout tab, click the Delete button. The
Delete menu opens, displaying options for deleting cells, columns, rows, or the
entire table. See Figure 3-14.
