An academic thesis requires knowledge of certain computer programs. Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint are the most widely used programs that students use. At first glance, light tasks can put a brake on the way. Of course, when you get to work, you start writing. This is actually your main activity and logically you focus on it. However, you must remember that a meaningful, scientifically valuable work must necessarily contain a variety of images, schemas, tables and illustrations. Surprisingly, designing all attachments at times is sometimes the hardest task that panics many students. Because of the technical subtleties one is not able to create a table directory in Word. As a result, you waste a lot of time for nothing and of course no result.
That’s why we’d like to give you some tips that will make the tedious formatting process easier. When you insert a table directory, you need to know exactly what to look for. So you can use your time as effectively as possible and make the final spurt. Even if you’ve created a spreadsheet multiple times, it would be useful to bring together the most important information and the most commonly used tools.
Step 1. Table
In the field “Insert” select “Table”. There you can enter or change the required column and row number. You can also insert or delete columns and lines by right-clicking. With this right-click you can also choose where to insert the columns or rows: right, left, down or up.
In the “Layout” window you can adjust and change the size of the columns as well as the rows. The table limits can actually push by hand and make either narrower or wider.
In the “Design” field you will find “shades” or “border types”. This allows you to change the design of your table and deviate from the usual look. So you have a ready-made table that you fill in with the text, numbers or other information.
Step 2. Text in a table
The next step is to enter the required information in the table. There is really nothing difficult here. In “Layout” you can manage the position of the text in the table and move it by clicking on “Orientation”.
In addition, you can make common formatting on the home page, such as different fonts, bold text or different colors.
Step 3. Label and Table Directory
To add captions, go to References and click Insert Caption. Enter the name and position of the label.
Now you can create a Word table directory yourself. So go back to “References”, select “Insert List of Figures” and click on “Table” in “Labeling Category”.
In this way, you create a table directory with the page number that is similar to a common directory. Finally, you can look at the page of the table you are looking for and skip it.
Inserting a Word table directory does not look so complicated now, right? In addition, these tips are also helpful when creating a bibliography or index directory, since you are actually going the same way.
