PSS ID Number: Q50877 Article last modified on 03-07-1997

====================================================================== 4.00 5.00 5.10 MACINTOSH kbusage

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


To delete a group of cells in a Word table (except for an entire row), follow these steps:

  1. Select the cells to delete.
  2. From the Edit menu, choose Table.
  3. Click Selection and select Delete.

However, if the selection contains an entire row and you choose the Selection option under Edit/Table, only the contents of the cells are deleted, not the cells themselves.

To delete an entire row of a table, use one of the following two methods:

  1. Choose Row instead of Selection in the Edit Tables dialog box after selecting the cells of the row to be deleted in the table. Select Delete.
  2. With the Selection option chosen, change the Shift Cells Vertically option, which is the default, to Shift Cells Horizontally in the Edit Tables dialog box after selecting the row to be deleted in the table. Select Delete.


Delete Rows and Delete Columns are commands that can also be added to any menu with the Commands command from the Edit menu. For more information on how to add items under a Word menu, please see pages 191-201 of the “Reference to Microsoft Word” version 4.0 manual.
