Edited by Thor, Leomar Umpad, Eng

Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to insert a table into a document in Open Office 4 when using a Macbook Air.

Steps

  1. 1
    First thing you need to do is open the program. We've done this for you and now you can see we have a document and we want to insert a table. There are a couple of ways to do this. The first way is to find the table icon on the screen and it is here, we've highlighted it.

    The other option is to click the button right next to the arrow. It is the same button, but a different section. This brings up a more detailed section where you can choose the title, name, columns, rows, and other elements of your table.

    If we cancel this, the other option is to go to Insert and click on Table; this is a longer way and is not particularly necessary.

    Now we are going to insert a table. So we choose the name - the name is Table 1; columns - we need 10 columns by 10 columns; heading, we don't need to have a heading, and we got borders. You can choose not to split the table if you want; so that is fine.
