Inserting Columns in a Table
Your first task is to insert a new column between the Type of Connection column and the
Monthly Charge column. This column will contain information on the Installation Charge
for each WAN option. You need to begin by selecting the column to the left of the loca-
tion where you want to insert a column.
To insert a column in the table:
1. Click in cell A1 (which contains the heading “Type of Connection”), and then drag the
mouse pointer down until the entire Type of Connection column is selected.
2. Click Table on the menu bar, point to Insert , and then click Columns to the Right . A new
column is inserted in the table to the right of the Type of Connection column.
Note : Word inserts the same number of new columns as are selected. For example, if you had
selected two columns in Step 1, Word would have inserted two new columns in the table.
3. Click in the new cell B1 (the blank cell at the top of the new column), and then enter the
Installation Charge heading and data shown in Figure 3-24.
