Defining cell margins Microsoft Office 2007

    Another way to modify the appearance of a table is to change the space that appears between items in a cell, known as the cell margin. Cell margins simply add blank space between text and cell borders. To define cell margins in a table, follow these steps:

    1. Move the cursor inside any cell in the table you want to modify.

    2. Click the Layout tab under the Table Tools tab.

    3. Click the Cell Margins icon in the Alignment group.

    The Table Options dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 6-16.

    5. Click OK.

    Word displays your table with text moved away from the borders, as shown in Figure 6-17.
