Tips to add rows in a table Microsoft Word
You can add multiple rows at once with the mouse. The way some of the first block of rows from the bottom row correspond to the number of rows you want to add. Suppose you want to add 4 lines at once then you have to block at least 4 cell lines that existed at the bottom 4. Next right click on the cell that has been blocked. On the popup menu select Insert item then click the sub items Insert below. 4 pieces of straight lines will be added at your table.
In our document sometimes we use tables to display data or the results of the analysis that we have made. The tables can present the data or information in a more concise and accurate. From my experience using Microsoft Word, it was hard-easy to work with it tables.
1. Inserting Multiple Lines Simultaneously
If you want to quickly add a few rows in a table, then first you should create a block of a few rows that you want. It means if you want to insert 4 rows then you should create a highlight or block of 4 rows, and so on. Then right click your mouse button to display the popup menu, then select the insert rows item. Then the tables will be inserted row with the number of rows that you previously block.
After that, you also can inserting the same number of rows by repeating the last command by pressing [F4] or [CTRL] + [Y] (see also: tips for typing faster with the keyboard shortcut). For example, if you previously had to insert four rows, then you can get 40 rows by pressing the [F4] or [Ctrl] + [Y] as much as nine times more.
2. Deleting Several Rows at Once.
Like the insert row, block a few lines to be removed first. Then right click your mouse button to display the popup menu, and then select the menu item delete rows. It will delete those rows.
3. Adding Rows at the End Table.
To quickly add one or a few rows at the end of a table you may using this method: click or put the editing cursor on the bottom line. Press the [Tab] button and hold it. Editing cursor will move in the right direction and if it has arrived at the end of the table, the cursor will automatically move downward and will add a new row. Release the [Tab] button when the number of added rows is accordance with what you need.
4. Avoid Tables that are too long and Complex
if you have created a document that contains a table which is the result of a merger or the format of many cells, then that’s not good for your document. Because it will takes more time to edit or save the document. To solve this problem, first you can break the table into several smaller tables (e.g. based on serial numbers, groups or categories) with the same format.
The second alternative, you can divide the document (into several files) that much smaller.
5. Consider using a spreadsheet
If you really have a long table then you should consider the combination of spreadsheet (like Microsoft Excel) for your tables and Words processor (like Microsoft Word) for narration.
