Splitting a table has four steps.
Splitting a table can be useful if you decide you want a table to be split into smaller sections. Splitting a table is also handy if you want to format a section of a table. When working with a table, the larger the portion of the table that you can format at once, the less work you will end up doing.
The picture above shows the steps to split a table:
- Highlight or place your cursor in the row that you want to become the first row of the new table.
- Click the Layout tab.
- Click Split Table from the Merge group.
- A paragraph will separate the two tables.
