Formatting a Table

PP07S-3.7.4

When you create a table, you typically include a header row or first column to create horizontal or vertical headings for your table information. You can use Quick Style options (New!), such as a header or total row, first or last column, or banded rows and columns, to show or hide a special row and column formatting. The Total Row option displays a row at the end of the table for column totals. The Banded Row or Banded Column option formats even rows or columns differently from odd rows or columns to make a table easier to view. You can also insert a picture into a table to create a more polished look.
