When you create a table here in a OneNote notebook, odds are pretty good you are going to have to come back and make some modifications, such as changing the number of columns or changing the number of rows. And that's what we are going to do right now. We are going to use our AGM section here of our Two Trees6 notebook. On the Agenda page where we've started a table we realize we need another column here where we show the time. So we are going to have speakers throughout the day at different times. And we need to add a column for those times.
So what we are going to do is click anywhere in the table. So if you click on the right-hand side you know you need to insert a column to the left. If you click in the first column, you'll need to insert a brand-new column to the right. And any time you click inside a table you'll see on the Ribbon just above the Layout tab the Table tools. So you can click there to see all those options. Now over here we've got Select, Delete and then the Insert group. And here is where we can insert both rows or columns. And you can see because I've clicked in the first column I need to insert a new column to the right.
And that's the last button in the group, adds a new column, so I will click. And there is our brand-new column. You can see that the contents are empty although those blank cells are selected. That means we can continue to work with this column. But we are just going to click in the very top row here of our new column and type in Time. Now we'll just click below that and we will type in 9am. If you need additional rows, maybe we need a new row after that header row where we see Day, Time and Speaker Name, just to leave a space between it and the contents below.
So with our cursor flashing here on the second row, we can insert a brand-new row, in this case above our flashing cursor. So we'll go to the Insert group once again, Insert Above and you can see rows are highlighted, just click once and there is your brand-new row. And you could do this as many times as you need for as many rows as you need. Same thing goes for deleting. We don't need that last row, so we click anywhere in the last row. And we can delete a row by clicking Delete Rows or Delete Columns, entire tables. Let's click Delete Rows and that last row is gone.
So we've got Day 1, 9am, David Rivers. We don't need to put a 1 in here again in the Day column. We'll just change it to 1 pm, tab over and type in a new name here. Let's do Karen Corey. And maybe we need an additional column here. We got the Speaker Name. How about who they are, like what their title is? So in this case let's say I add another column after our current column. So in this case when we go to the Insert. We want to insert to the right. Give it a click. And there is our new column.
Notice it's the same width as our first two columns. The only one that's a little bit wider was made wider automatically as we enter content. So it always accommodates the widest entry. And we'll just type in Title here. And let's add some titles, CEO, and for Karen Corey, let's put her in as the VP of Marketing. And you can see it stretches out the column for us. So inserting and deleting rows and columns is really no problem at all. You can always modify your table after the fact, because the odds are pretty good that when you create a table, you are not going to get the exact number of rows and columns right the first time.
We'll always be able to come back and do this.
