Adjusting Column Width and
Row Height
When you begin typing in a cell, you saw that as
you type, the text wraps to the next line in the
same cell. You may find that you don’t want the
data to wrap around, but the column is not wide
enough to hold your data. You can easily change
the width of columns or the height of rows. You
can manage the task with the mouse or you can
choose options in the Ribbon.

No matter which method you used to create your
table, you enter the data as well as format or
modify the table in the following ways.
Changing Table Size
Okay, now you have your table created, but it
doesn’t contain the right number of rows or columns.
You can easily change the table size by adding or
deleting rows or columns from your table. Table 5-1
illustrates some of the different ways you can
change the table size.
