Merging and splitting cells
Merging and splitting cells
Tables often need column heads that span more than one
column of data. Likewise, cells in neighboring rows might need
to be combined. Word 2013 makes it possible for you to select
two or more cells and combine them into a single cell. You can
go the other way, too: you can select a cell and split it into two
or more cells within the same space. With these two tools, you
can create almost any arrangement that you can imagine.
Merge cells
1 Select two or more adjacent cells. They can be side by side, above
and below, or any rectangular block.
2 On the Layout tab under Table Tools, in the Merge group, click
Merge Cells.
split cells apart
1 Select the cell or cells that you want to split.
2 On the Layout tab under Table Tools, in the Merge group, click Split
The Split Cells dialog box opens.
3 Set the number of rows and columns that you want to create from
the selected cells.
4 Click OK.
TIP If the Merge Cells Before Split check box is selected, all
the highlighted cells are merged into one cell, which is then
split into the numbers of rows and columns you set. If the check box is
cleared, each original cell is converted to the requested numbers of
rows and columns.
TIP If a single cell contains several paragraphs of text before
you split the cell into multiple columns, the paragraphs will be
separated into the resulting cells.
