Insert Tables Into PowerPoint 2007

This article was written by MysticGeek, a tech blogger at the How-To Geek Blogs.

PowerPoint is a great way to present data to groups, and if you create slideshows it’s important to know how to present information. Today we’ll briefly go over the use of tables in a presentation.

On The Ribbon Click the Insert tab and click Table. 


You will get a menu which allows you to select how many rows and columns to include with the table.


Choose the design and theme by choosing the Design tab and select Themes.


Also in Design you can choose from a plethora of table designs.  Just hovering over the different designs will show what that design looks like in the document.


You can really mix and match designs, colors, and themes to create a quality presentation.

    Is it possible to insert a table into a text box in Powerpoint? Or do they only get created directly on the slide?

    I thought the question was about copying a table from somewhere else into Powerpoint? (The answer given is about creating within Powerpoint).
    My problem is a set of tables I’ve made in Word, which I want to copy into Powerpoint, and being different sizes they go all over the place.
    Any pointers for doing that would be appreciated!
    Thanks a lot.
