Add a Table

A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint iconIt is not as easy as in Word, and there are not as many features, but it is quite possible and not very difficult to add a table to a SharePoint page.

In the demo below Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, shows how to insert and modify a table in a SharePoint page.

Insert table

  1. Open the page where you want to place the picture in edit mode.

  2. SharePoint insert table controlUnder the INSERT tab, click on the Table button.

  3. Select 'Insert Table' to open a dialog OR use the grid below the button.

  4. In the dialog, enter the number of columns and rows you want the table to include, OR drag the mouse over that number of columns and rows in the grid.

  5. When you click OK in the dialog OR let go of the mouse, the table will be inserted into the page.

Modify table

When you place the mouse cursor inside the table, two new table tool tabs will be shown: TABLE LAYOUT and DESIGN. Here you can edit the table, and in the demo below Peter shows how some of the controls work.
