Merge table cells into one cell

You can combine two or more cells in the same row or column into a single cell. For example, you can merge several cells horizontally to create a table heading that spans several columns.

  1. Select the cells you want to merge.

    Note:  If the cells in your table have no visible borders, you may find it helpful to show gridlines. Click Table Tools > Layout > View Gridlines.
