15 Sorting Data in a Table You can sort information in a table on different search criteria to organize the table contents to emphasize data in different ways. Ascending order rearranges data from A to Z. Descending order rearranges data from Z to A. 15 15

16 Sorting Data in a Table (continued)
Clicking the Sort button opens the Sort dialog box. 16 16

17 Converting Text to a Table and a Table to Text
Word can quickly convert text separated by paragraph markers, commas, tabs, or other characters into a table with cells. When converting a text to a table, Word determines the number of columns needed based on paragraph markers, tabs, or commas. When converting a table to text, Word inserts paragraph markers, tabs, or commas to show where the column breaks are. 17 17

18 CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES 1) True or False? You can convert a table to text, but you cannot convert text to a table. Answer: False. 2) True or False? When converting text to a table, Word uses tabs to determine the number of columns to create. Answer: True.

19 Summary The Draw Table tool and the Eraser tool are especially useful when you need to create a complex table. You can format text alignment in table cells the same way you apply those formats in other Word documents. Borders and shading greatly enhance the appearance of a table and often make the table easier to read. 19 19

20 Summary (continued) Word provides several built-in styles to make it fast and easy to apply borders and shading to a table. Word provides Quick Tables that are already formatted and contain sample data, so you can quickly create a table. You can use the Sort feature to reorganize the table contents to emphasize data in different ways. Word can convert text to a table or vice versa. 20 20
