ATOI365D#Office365Challenge – Tables in Word – A couple of days ago, we had a look at inserting tables (of contents) into your Word document. Today we’ll cover tables which are used for displaying data in rows and columns.

Day: 62 of 365, 303 left
Tools: Microsoft Word
Description: Insert Tables in Word for displaying data in rows and columns.

To insert the table, select the place in the document where you wish to insert the table, click on the Insert Tab (1), you can select number of columns and rows by using the blank tables (2), or use examples from the Quick Tables (3) section. This is also a first for me, I’ve chosen one of the calendar templates (4), and this is the end result (5):

WordTables1

Once the table is inserted, you can use the Table Tools section on your ribbon to make changes to the settings / design of your Table:

WordTables3

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!!

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.

Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
