Adding rows and columns
Once you have created a table, it is easy to add rows and columns. When you want to insert
rows and columns, you must i rst select part of the table. For example, if you want to insert
two columns, you select two columns in the table, and then select Insert Left or Insert Right,
depending on where you want to insert the columns. You can perform the same procedure
for rows to insert multiple rows at one time.
In this exercise, you’ll add two rows of information to the table. On the Ribbon, when you
click the Table Tools Layout tab, the Rows and Columns group displays all the tools you need
to add rows above or below the selected row or rows.
