Adding Rows to a Table
You can add rows within a table or at the end of a table.
If the table contains a footer row, rows added at the bottom of the table are added
above the footer row.
If all the body cells in a column above the new row contain the same formula, the
formula is repeated in the new row.
Here are ways to add rows:
To add a single row, select a cell, and then choose Format > Table > Add Row Above or
Add Row Below.
You can also choose these commands from the Edit Rows & Columns pop-up menu in
the Table inspector.
To add multiple rows, select the number of rows you want to add (select three rows if
you want to add three rows). To add rows after a particular row, make sure the bottom
row selected is the one after which you want the new rows added; to add rows before
a particular row, make sure the top row selected is the one before which you want the
new rows added. Then choose one of the commands described above.
To add a row at the end of the table, press Return while the last cell is selected.
Press Return twice if you’ve just added or changed the cell value and you’re still
editing the cell.
If “Return key moves to next cell” below Table Options in the Table inspector isn’t
selected, press Tab instead from the last cell in the row.
To add one or more rows at the end of a table, use the Rows controls in the Table pane
of the Table inspector.
