The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh versions 4.0, 5.0, 5.1


In Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, choosing Cut from the Edit menu (or pressing COMMAND+X) while a table or portion of a table is selected affects only the text within the selected cells, not the cells themselves.

To delete cells from a table, use the following steps:

  1. Select the cells. From the Format menu (Edit menu in Word 4.0), choose Table Layout (Table in Word 4.0).
  2. Click the appropriate options, then press the Delete button in the dialog box.

There is one exception to this procedure. If you select the last row(s) of a table and at least the first character of the next paragraph (not part of the table), choosing Cut deletes everything selected, including the table row(s).
