Using the Row and Column Grid to Create a Table
Using the Row and Column Grid to Create a Table
When you click Table in the Tables group on the Insert tab, a mixed list of options appears,
as is shown in Figure 15-1. The grid of blank boxes at the top of the Table list is a clickable
control that you can use to point and click your way to creating a new table. Here’s how to
do it:
1. Display the Table list by clicking Table on the Insert tab.
2. Move the pointer down and to the right until the number of rows and columns you
want to create in the table is selected (Figure 15-2). Notice that the number of rows
and columns is displayed at the top of the list. Additionally, Live Preview shows the
table at the cursor position in your document.
3. When the table is the size you want, click the mouse to add it to the document.
Figure 15-2 Create a table your way by dragging the pointer over the table grid.
Inserting a Table and Specifying AutoFit Options
When you know the number of rows and columns you want to create in a table and you
want to control the way the text its in those cells, you can use the Insert Table dialog box
to create the table in the dimensions you want. On the Insert tab, choose Table then click
Insert Table. The Insert Table dialog box appears, as you see in Figure 15-3.
