Selecting and cuttting sections (ROWS)

Selecting and cuttting sections (ROWS)

Post by species835 » Fri, 23 Oct 2009 20:24:34


Hi,

REF. MS WORD ver 2002 (10.6854.6856)SP3

I was filling in a form recently and completed four columns. Later, I
realised that I should have filled this section in using reverse
chronological order.

I tried to highlight individual sections (rows) in order to cut and
paste, but all I could do was highlight the whole table.

Can anyone tell me how to highlight rows.

Thanks

PS. I tried using SORT to date DESCEND the dates (which it did), but
I could not get the other columns to change.

Any advice on this matter also appreciated.

Hi species8350,

Assuming the document isn't protected for forms, you should be able to simply hold down the left mouse button and drag the cursor
from the first cell in the row to the end-of-row marker. You should then be able to release the mouse then hold down the left mouse
button and drag the row to the start of the row you want to insert it before.

Hi species8350,

Works fine for me with Word 2000 & 2007. I don't have a copy of Word 2002 to play with, but I'd be surprised if it's any different.
Does your table have any merged/split cells?

Hi,

No,

When I try to highlight a row, the whole table highlights. This table
is within a form that was created by a company.

Thanks

Hi species8350,

Do you see an end-of-row marker for each row in the table (you may need to click the symbol on the main toolbar to show the
document's formatting)? What happens if you use Table|Select|Row?

Yes, I do see the end of row markers.

When I click: table - select - row, then the who table is selected

Thanks

Hi species8350,

Does your table have more than one row?

i species8350,

There should be one end-of-row marker for each row in the table. If your table has only one end-of-row marker, then you're dealing
with a table that has a single row. Maybe it's a nested table, with the row you're after actually being part of a table that's
embedded in a single-row table.

Hi,

I have four colums. In each column there is an end or row marker. So
basically there are end of row markers throughout the table.

Is it possible to highlight single rows across the four colums?

Thanks

i species8350,

Columns don't have end-of-row markers - rows do. They look similar to the end-of-cell markers in each cell.

i species8350,

For a 4-column table, that's what Table|Select|Row does. Otherwise, you can select them manually.
