Adding Table Header Rows or Header Columns
Use header rows and columns when you want to label rows and columns. Header
rows and columns are formatted so that they stand out from the other (body) rows
and columns. Header rows are always directly above the topmost body row. Header
columns are always directly to the left of the leftmost body column.
You can use as many as five header rows and five header columns. Multiple headers
are useful when you want to assign names to two or more header columns or header
rows. To format a header to span rows or columns, merge the header cells, as “Merging
Table Cells” on page 198 describes.
If a table contains both header rows and header columns, the top left cell or cells are
considered to be part of the header row. Header columns appear below any header rows.
If an inline table spans pages, columns, or text boxes and you want to repeat header
rows in each, choose Format > Table > Header Rows > “Repeat Header Rows on Each
Page.” Editing the text or changing the look of a header row in one place changes it
consistently throughout the table.
Here are ways to add or delete header rows or header columns:
Select a table or an element in it. Click Inspector in the toolbar, click the Table button,
click Table, and then click the appropriate Headers & Footer button. Choose the
number of header rows or header columns from the pop-up menu.
Select a table or an element in it, and then choose Format > Table > Header Rows or
Table > Header Columns. Then choose the number of header rows or header columns
from the submenu.
If a table spans pages and you want to repeat headers at the top of each page, click
Inspector in the toolbar, click the Table button, click Table, click the Headers button,
and then choose “Repeat Header Cells on Each Page.”
Header cells play an important role in making formulas in table cells easier to read
and create. For more information about this topic, choose Help > “iWork Formulas and
