Chapter 9: Working with Tables
Moving a table (page 24)
To move a table from one part of a document to another part:
Click anywhere in the table.
From the main menu, choose Table > Select > Table.
Press Ctrl+X or click the Cut icon in the Standard toolbar. (This step removes the contents of the cells but leaves the empty cells, which must be removed in step 6.)
Move the cursor to the target position and click on it to fix the insertion point.
Press Ctrl+V or click the Paste icon in the Standard toolbar. (This pastes the cells and their contents and formatting.)
Return to the original table, click somewhere in it and then choose Table > Delete > Table from the main menu.
