Formatting and Coloring a Table Microsoft Office 2007

    After you create a table, you can format individual cells (the intersection of a row and column) or entire rows and columns by aligning text in cells, resizing columns and rows, and adding borders, shading, or colors, all of which can make the text inside easier to read.

    Selecting all or part of a table

    To format and color a table, you must first select the table, row, column, or cell that you want to modify. To select all or part of a table, follow these steps:

    The Table Tools tab appears.

    2. Click the Layout tab.

    3. Click Select in the Table group.
