Format The Table

In our previous post, Setting Up MS Word for Success, we mentioned the challenge of formatting a table that was the trigger for that post and video.

For fun, we will now show how the table was actually formatted in these two videos.

In the first video we format the design of the table to give it a “corporate” look as used in reports, and other official documents. We remove the typical word-processing look, and bring in the corporate colour.

Once the table has the right look, in the second video we make the text wrap around the table. The text wrap feature is not available for tables so we use a work around – we place the table in a text box and then wrap the text around the text box instead.

Tables are quite useful in many documents so being able to work comfortable with table is an essential skill. We have many more courses so be sure to visit our training site.
