Insert a Table by Drawing
Open a presentation in PowerPoint.
In Normal view, under the Slides tab, select the slide on
which you want to insert a table.
In the Ribbon, click the Insert tab. In the Tables group,
click Table and choose Draw Table from the drop-down
palette. The mouse cursor changes into a pencil icon.
To display a grid on the slide, click the View tab in the
Ribbon and check Gridlines.
Click and drag diagonally across the table to define the
outside border of the table. Release the mouse when you
have your desired table shape, as shown in Figure 10-3.
To add columns or rows, click the Layout And Table
Tools tab in the Ribbon.

In the Rows And Columns group, click Insert Above,
Insert Below, Insert Right, or Insert Left. We added
two additional rows, as shown in Figure 10-4. To add
multiple rows or columns, select the number of rows or
columns you want to add and then choose the
appropriate Insert option. To enter data, see “Enter Table Text
in PowerPoint,” later in this chapter.
