I've recently started using tables in pages I've created.
After looking at the FAQ about HTML
I made my first table
This first table was small, therefore quick and easy to manage.
But then I thought if I make a bigger table, it would take a lot of time, and I might forget some "tr" or "td".
So I created a frame I could use over and over, for a faster and easier way to make a table in an SP page.
Maybe some of you already operate like described below... but I thought it would be a good idea to share this with you.
Step 1 :
Open an Excel file and fill-in the cells as shown on the picture underneath.
-> You can change the information about "border", "cellspacing" and "color" the way you like.
-> Fill in the cells between "td" and "/td" with your information
-> I added some "underscores" on each side of the top word to enlarge the columns, but it's not compulsory.
-> It is important to add the "noformat" "/noformat" to take-off any useless space.
-> Save your Excel file for future tables.
-> If you do not have Excel, you can download for free OpenOffice
which works as fine (it also includes an equivalent to Word & Powerpoint).
Step 2 :
the relevant cells of your Excel file and paste
them into a "New Message" in Outlook Express, as shown below.
Step 3 :
Next, select the option "Plain Text" as mentionned below (this shows Outlook Express in French... sorry !)
Step 4 :
Select the whole "no format" text and copy it into your Summitpost page
Step 5 :
Once you're done editing your page, press "Submit Object"
Step 6 :
I hope this will be useful.
Eazy peazy, let's get busy !
