How to Divide a Page Into Rows & Columns on MS Word

Excel isn't the only Microsoft Office product capable of producing rows and columns in its documents. It's also possible to divide a page into rows and columns on MS Word. To create rows and columns, use Word's table feature. It contains a number of options for setting up your document. This includes the ability to change table styles, draw unique tables and modify the number of rows and columns each table includes.

Step

Start MS Word. Click in the top-left area of the page you're dividing into rows and columns.

Step

Click the "Insert" tab and find the Tables group.

Step

Click "Table" to open a drop-down menu. The menu contains a grid filled with small boxes.

Step

Drag your cursor diagonally across the grid until it highlights the number of columns and rows you want in the document. Click the grid when you've selected the appropriate amount. This adds a table to your document.

Step

Place your cursor over the bottom-right corner of the table. Click your mouse when the cursor turns into a diagonal arrow.

Step

Drag the table down and to the right until it covers the entire page. Release the mouse button to divide the page into rows and columns in MS Word.
