Information is often much easier for readers to consume when it's in a table--no, not restaurant tables--tabular rows and columns. For example, check out how much easier this list of products and prices is to follow when it's in a simple table. First the list:
Rhododendron: $15/foot; Vine Maple: $5/foot; Japanese Maple: $10/foot; Dogwood (white): $12/foot; Dogwood (pink): $15/foot; Sub-Alpine Fir: $18/foot; Deodara Cedar: $20/foot.
And now the same information in a simple table:
This table is still dull and not real easy to read, so let's add little flair to make it more readable by adding some color, borders, and different color and weight of the text font.
Obviously the point of this exercise is that you can easily do this with Publisher, making your catalogs, newsletters, flyers, coupons, and whatever else you need to communicate easier and more engaging to read. In Publisher 2003 and 2007, you select the table or cells in the table and right-click to get to the Format Table dialog box to change the fill and border lines.
In Publisher 2010, you can still format tables this way, but we now have the Table Tools Design tab that appears on the ribbon when you create or select a table. This tab has a gallery of predesigned table formats. If you hover over any gallery selection, you see a preview of what your table will look like if you choose that format.
