Adding and Formatting a Table for Your Webpage

Posted September 10th, 2010 at 1:26 pm.

The Contribute manual includes these  instructions for adding and working with tables.

Important notes for use of tables with the Bryn Mawr templates:

  • Please use tables for displaying tabular data, not for centering text or performing other layout functions.
  • If you have a table in a Microsoft Excel or Word document, it generally works best to use Contribute’s “insert Microsoft Office Document” feature rather than copying and pasting from the Office table into a table in Contribute. The latter often creates a table within a table (and thus confusion).
  • You can add the yellow table headers by selecting left, top, or both headers at the bottom of the “Insert Table” dialog box.¬† These headers can increase readability and accessibility of your table.
