Create a table in Excel.

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi all,

I want to make a table in Excel! I want the names of three People at the top (one each column) and on the left what they did and how it lead, each a separate row. I typed it all up like that, but now I have no idea how to create it. All of the table options are so complex.

Please give me some reason for it.

Create a table in Excel.


I guess what you want to do is like the image below. See figure 1.


                                                                                                              figure 1.

I suggest that you put all the names of the philosophers in one column and the accomplishment on the left side of it. See figure 2.


                                                                                                          figure 2.

It is much better if you do the same on figure2. Excel options are not that complex. If you want to change the format of each cell just right click it and select “Format Cell” all formatting options regarding text, numbers, etc. can be found there.

If you use Microsoft 2007 or later, it is much easier than using Excel 2003. All the options are shown in version 2007. You’ll just have to choose what tab from the menu you want to use. Microsoft has a support page regarding MS Office.
