    Inserting row with different number of cells

    catero

      Hello all,

       

      I'm a new user.  I have a table that has three columns and 4 rows.  I want to add a row at the bottom that will have 5 columns.  I thought that I could insert a section and then edit the section independently from the rest of the table but this is not working.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Thank you.

          Hi,

           

          tables generally have the same number of columns in all rows.

          So, you can create a table with initailly five columns and for those rows you only need 4 of them you merge two table cells.

          Or, you simply hide the fifth colum in those rows you don't need them.

           

          Finally you also can build a kind of tables with subforms by yourself.

          This method offers more flexibility as a regular table.

          For each row a subform (flowed > left to right) with all text fields etc..

          And all those subforms wrapped in another subform (flowed > top to bottom).

           

          You better don't try to combine two tables with a different number of colums.

          The tables in Designer are very fragle and Designer often get's messed up by those things or crashes!
