Formatting and Coloring a Table
Formatting and Coloring a Table
After you create a table, you can format individual cells (the intersection of a
row and column) or entire rows and columns by aligning text in cells, resizing
columns and rows, and adding borders, shading, or colors, all of which can
make the text inside easier to read.
Selecting all or part of a table
To format and color a table, you must first select the table, row, column,
or cell that you want to modify. To select all or part of a table, follow these
steps:
1. Click in the table, row, column, or cell you want to modify.
The Table Tools tab appears.
2. Click the Layout tab.
3. Click Select in the Table group.
A pull-down menu appears, as shown in Figure 7-10.

Aligning text in a table cell
You can align text in a table cell in nine different ways: Top Left (the default
alignment), Top Center, Top Right, Center Left, Center, Center Right, Bottom
Left, Bottom Center, and Bottom Right, as shown in Figure 7-11.
