Introduction to the new tables in Excel 2010

As the title says this just an introduction. Its aimed at non power users who have recently moved to Office 2010 or 2007 from Excel 2003.

The main reason for this article is to demonstrate the basic use of the new table features and the ribbon features available to users.

I am going to start with showing you how to make a table from existing data and demonstrate a few of the ribbon features. I wont be going into anything too complicated in this post. Depending on feedback I might write some more specific detailed feature articles on table components and using tables later including converting tables back to ranges..

So how do we make a table – its actually very simple. In the following screenshots you will see a fairly typical spreadsheet with some information in it. I will show you how to turn that into a table.


Select any cell in the table.

From the Home Tab on the Ribbon click on the Format as Table Button.
