Adding Tables to a Publication

Another way to present text information in a publication is to use a table. A table enables you to place information into rows and columns, making it easy to arrange information in a highly accessible format. The intersection of a row and a column is called a cell ; the cells are where you place your data. Publisher gives you complete control over the number of rows and columns in your table and their size.

Tables are added to a publication page in much the same way as any object (such as a text box or a picture frame). You use the Insert Table tool on the Objects toolbar.

To insert a table onto a page, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Insert Table tool on the Objects toolbar.

  2. Click and drag to create the table on the page.

  3. In the Create Table dialog box, type the number of rows and columns for the table (see Figure 7.4).

    Figure 7.4. The Create Table dialog box enables you to select the number of rows and columns for the table.


  4. Click OK . The table appears on the publication page.

When you want to place information side-by-side on the page, you will find that tables make it a simple task. Tables provide you with much more control over the placement of information as compared to trying to align items with indents or tabs.
