Formatting a Table

PowerPoint enables you to apply a variety of formats and borders to your tables, including the capability to do the following:

  • Apply different styles, widths, and colors

  • Insert and delete rows and columns

  • Merge and split cells

  • Align cell text to the top, bottom, or center

If this toolbar doesn't currently appear, you can open it by clicking the Tables and Borders button on the Standard toolbar or by selecting View, Toolbars, Tables and Borders.
