Adding Columns to a Table
You can add new columns to a table.
Here are ways to add columns:
To add a single column, select a cell and then choose Format > Table > Add Column
Before or Add Column After.
You can also choose these commands from the Edit Rows & Columns pop-up menu in
the Table inspector.
To add multiple columns, select the number of columns you want to add (select three
columns to add three columns). To add columns after a particular column, make sure
the rightmost column selected is the one after which you want the new columns
added; to add columns before a particular column, make sure the leftmost column
selected is the one before which you want the new columns added. Then choose one
of the commands above.
You can use the Tab key to add a column to the right side of the table when “Return
key moves to next cell” below Table Options in the Table inspector is selected.
Press Tab once when the last cell is selected. Press Tab twice if you’ve just added or
changed the cell value.
To add one or more columns to the right side of a table, use the Columns controls in
the Table pane of the Table inspector.
You can also use the format bar.
You can split cells into two equal columns. “
