Word Tip of the Day


Size a table the same width as the page (97/2000/2001/2002)


When you create a table, Word sizes the table to span the page width by default. However, as you customize your table's column count and column widths, the default page-width table sizing may be lost. To resize a table so that it fits the width of the page in Word 2000 and later, select the entire table and then choose Table | Table Properties from the menu bar. Click on the Table tab, and then select the Preferred Width check box in the Size area. Choose Percent from the Measure In dropdown list, then change the Preferred Width setting to 100%. When you've finished, click OK. Word resizes the table to fit the page, retaining the table's relative column widths.

To resize a table in Word 97, select the entire table and then choose Table | Cell Height And Width from the menu bar. Click on the Column tab, and then change the Width Of Columns setting to Auto and click OK. Word resizes the table to fit the page, applying equal sizes to each column. (Note: As an alternative, you can resize the table by modifying the width of a single column instead of all columns. To do so, select any cell within the column you wish to modify instead of selecting the entire table.)
