How to Format Tables in MS Excel

Now we will see how we can format tables in MS Excel.

For creating table we have an option in our HOME tab also so as 'Format as Table', otherwise we can also use 'Ctrl+T' shortcut key for creating table.

To select all the data in our Excel sheet we will press 'Ctrl+A' shortcut key, and then after to check that all our data is completely selected we can press 'Ctrl+.' shortcut key to see on each corner cell of our data that it is properly selected or not.

Now to convert the data into table format we will first select all the data, and then click insert table in our INSERT tab, and hence table will be created.

While creating table the only thing which you have to keep in mind is that no row should be kept empty.

Also when our table will be created we will see a 'Table tools' option above our DESIGN tab, which provide different styles and formats of table like dark, medium, light etc..

We have also other option like banded rows in banded columns in MS Excel which we can change according to our requirement from 'Table tools'.

If you want to highlight first column or last column then we can select their separate options which are already present in DESIGN column.

We have an option of 'Total row' which will give us a row at last which will show the Total of our data which we have taken.

In table we have a very good functionality which is known as 'Slicer'. It is used to filter all the data of our table. When we use this option we can see that some particular columns which we selected are shown in a dialogue box in front of our screen. Then we can select any data which we want to be displayed.


Create a table in Excel with ease! Just select a cell within your data, then use this handy tool to create a table from the selection. Choose from a variety of styles for your table, and set your cell range. Mark if your table has headers, then select OK to create your table. With Cell, you can create and format tables in Excel without any prior knowledge of Excel formulas. Simply select a cell within your data, and Cell will do the rest. Choose from a variety of styles to make your table look beautiful and professional, including different colors and patterns. Add headers or footers to your table to make it easier to read.

A table is a list of rows and columns that visually show the relationship between columns or rows. It is often used to organize data into categories, by putting them into different cells. A table can range from simple to complex depending on how many columns it has and if it uses shading or color. There are two types of tables in MS Excel, the standard table with 2 columns and the non-standard with more than 2 columns. A table is an important component of any spreadsheet and looks very professional on a presentation. There are two ways to format a table in MS Excel: 1) Using the ribbon's Home tab 2) Using the Format Cells dialogue box.

Slicers are the pop-up windows that help you to slice your data into different views. They can be made up of columns, rows, or both. Slicers are created by using the slicer tool in Excel. If you want to add a slicer to your sheet, open up the tool and select "create slicer". If you want to create a new one, right-click on any part of your sheet and choose "create slicer" from the drop-down menu. An MS Excel slicer is a tool that lets you choose a range of cells and then it displays the contents in a list. The slicer allows you to filter the cells and select the resulting range of data to display in a different sheet or pivot table. Step 1: Create your worksheet. Step 2: To create your slicer, open the Data tab and click on the Add Slicer button on the left-hand side of your worksheet. Step 3: In your new blank slicer, enter one column for “Category” and one column for “Value”. Step 4: Click on Category in your main worksheet, select all cells below it, then click on.
