Inserting and Deleting Rows and Columns
Even after creating your table, you still have complete control over the number of rows and columns in it. You can delete empty or filled rows and columns depending on your particular need.
To insert a row or column into the table, place the insertion point in a cell that is in the row or column next to where you want to place a new row or column. Select the Table menu and then point to Insert to see the available options. Options can be selected from a cascading menu:
Insert a new row above the selected row.
Insert a new row below the selected row.
Columns to the Left—
Insert a new column to the left of the selected column.
Columns to the Right—
Insert a new column to the right of the selected column.
You can also easily delete columns or rows from your table. Select the rows or columns, and then select the Table menu. Point at Delete, and then select Columns or Rows from the cascading menu, as appropriate. The columns or rows selected are removed from the table.
Quick Select Multiple Columns
To select several cells, drag the mouse across them. You can also click the first cell in the series and then hold down the Shift key as you click the last cell you want to select.
