Figure 21-8:
As you select the
number of rows and
columns you want
for the table, Live
Preview shows how
the table will look,
complete with
formatting to fit your
presentation’s theme.
Tip: If the spreadsheet entry area is too small to work with, expand the box that holds the spreadsheet by
clicking a corner resizing handle and dragging it outward.
Later, if you want to edit the table’s data, double-click the table. PowerPoint changes
it back to a spreadsheet, and you can edit the cells.
Drawing a table
You can also draw your table freehand, which is helpful when you need a table with
rows or columns of different widths or some cells split into subsections. It’s easy:
1. Make the slide that will hold the table your active slide. Then select
Insert Table DrawTable(Alt,N,T,D).
Your mouse pointer changes to a pencil. Click and drag to draw a rectangle.
When it’s the size you want your table to be, let go of the mouse button.

Click the Draw Table button (Alt, JT, D) to go back to drawing.
