Where are the Table Tools?

You may want to change the design of an Excel table or PivotTable, or refresh their data, or set some options for them. You've read a help topic that mentions a command on the Table Tools or the PivotTable Tools, but you don't see these tools.

Table Tools and PivotTable Tools

If you don't see Table Tools or PivotTable Tools on your worksheet, do this:

  • Click any cell in the table or PivotTable.

If you've selected an Excel table, you'll see the Table Tools with a Design tab. If you've selected a PivotTable, you'll see the PivotTable Tools with an Analyze and a Design tab.
