You may need to insert tables in your MS Word document to present data. Your table may contain text or numbers in different cells. But, for each cell, Word defaults to left alignment in the horizontal direction. The default vertical alignment is to the top of the cell.
If you do not like the default alignments, Word allows you to change them. For instance, you may have a lot of text in some cells and few in others. Center aligning all the text in the table makes it easier to read.
For horizontal alignment, you may consider one of the three choices that Word offers:
- Left (default)
For the vertical alignment, Word offers three more choices in relation to the cell:
- Top (default)
Additionally, you may apply the process in two ways:
- Center align only a select cell
- Center align the entire table in one go.
We will show you how you can accomplish the above in easy steps.
