The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, version 4.0


To delete cells within a table and then shift the remaining cells up and left to fill in the gap, or “snake” the remaining cells into position, do the following:

  1. Select the table.
  2. From the Document menu, choose Table To Text.
  3. Under Convert To in the Table To Text dialog box, select Paragraphs and click OK.
  4. Highlight the text to delete (including the paragraph mark).
  5. From the Edit menu, choose Cut.
  6. Select the remaining text.
  7. From the Document menu, choose Insert Table.
  8. Type in the number of columns, and under Convert From select Paragraphs.


The following is an example of the result of this procedure:

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

(After the first cell has been removed:)

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

This procedure can also be used to add text. In step 4, add a paragraph instead of removing one.
