Table rows are a drag

BY J. CARLTON COLLINS, CPA

Q: I often rearrange rows in Word tables, and I find it cumbersome to insert a new blank row, copy and paste row data, and then delete the original row. Is there a faster way to accomplish this task?

A: To rearrange rows in a Word table, you need not insert a blank row. Simply click to the left of the row (in the margin area) to select the row, then click in the row and drag the row to the desired position. If your rows have multiple cells, make sure that your mouse arrow is positioned to the left of the table (in the margin area) when you unclick the mouse.
