Tables II: Table Tricks

Image showing how to split a table

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:

  1. Highlight or place your cursor in the row that you want to become the first row of the new table.
  2. Click the Layout tab.
  3. Click Split Table from the Merge group.
  4. A paragraph will separate the two tables.
