If you have used programs like MS Word, Excel or PowerPoint you will know how useful tables are in helping to organise and group related information together. Like these products OneNote also offers the ability to construct tables in that familiar row and column format.

Lets take a look.

  5. Click the left mouse button to finish.

On completion a table is created with x rows and x columns. Where a row and column meet OneNote creates a small box known as a cell. The cell is where you type your text.

To insert a new row in a table:

  3. In the Insert group, click Insert below.

To insert a new column in a table:

  1. Click the mouse in the column next to which you wish to insert.
  2. From the ribbon, select the Layout tab.
  3. Click Table Tools.
  4. In the insert group, either click Insert Left or Insert right.

To delete a row or column in a table:

  1. Click any cell in the row/column to be deleted.
  2. Select the Layout tab from the ribbon.
  3. In the Delete group, click either delete row or delete columns.


Tip

Want to create a table whilst in the middle of typing notes? Don't want to be bothered with the Ribbon?

Here's how!

  1. Click on any location on a page.
  2. Start typing the text you want to appear in the first cell of the table. The first cell is the topmost row and leftmost column.
  3. Press the TAB key on the keyboard. A new table is created by building the second cell of row 1!
  4. To create another column simply press TAB again.
  5. To create a new row press the Enter key.

How easy was that?
