You can modify an existing table by adding or deleting rows or columns. You can also merge cells to accommodate data.

Adding rows and columns

You can add a single row or column, or you can add multiple rows or columns at the same time.

To add a single row to a table:

  1. In your draft, place the insertion point in a table cell, or select an entire row.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Click the Insert Row Below button in the toolbar.

      A new row appears below the insertion point or selection.

    • Select Table > Insert > Row Above or Table > Insert > Row Below.
    • Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh), and then select Insert Row Above or Insert Row Below.

To add a single column to a table:

  1. In your draft, place the insertion point in a table cell, or select an entire column.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Click the Insert Column to the Right button in the toolbar.

      A new column appears to the right of the insertion point or selection.

    • Select Table > Insert > Column to the Left or Table > Insert > Column to the Right.
    • Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh), and then select Insert Column to the Left or Insert Column to the Right.

To add multiple rows or columns to a table:

  1. In your draft, place the insertion point in a table cell.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Select Table > Insert > Multiple Rows or Columns.
    • Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh), and then select Insert Multiple Rows or Columns. [View MAC Image | View PC Image]
    • Complete the dialog box.

      For information about options in the dialog box, click the Help button.

    • Click OK.

Contribute adds the rows or columns to your table.

Deleting rows and columns

You can delete a single row or column, or you can delete multiple rows or columns at the same time.

To delete rows or columns from a table in your draft, do one of the following:

  • Select entire rows or columns, and then press Delete or Backspace.
  • Select entire rows or columns or place the insertion point in a single row or column, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh), and then select Delete Row or Delete Column.
  • Select entire rows or columns, and then select Table > Delete > Row or Table > Delete > Colum

Merging and splitting cells

You can merge any number of adjacent cells—as long as the entire selection is a line or a rectangle of cells—to produce a single cell that spans several columns or rows. You can split a cell into any number of rows or columns, regardless of whether it was previously merged.

To merge table cells:

  1. In your draft, select the cells you want to merge.

    Note: You must select at least two cells.

  2. Do one of the following:
    • Select Table > Merge Cells.
    • Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh), and then select Merge Cells.

Contribute merges the content into a single cell.

To split table cells:

  1. In your draft, place the insertion point in the cell you want to split.

    Note: Contribute only splits one cell at a time, even if you select multiple cells.

  2. Do one of the following:
    • Select Table > Split Cell.
    • Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh), and then select Split Cell.

  4. Click OK.

Contribute splits the cell into multiple rows or columns.
