Excel Tables


Table

Ranges can be converted into tables.

Tables make it easier to structure and organize data.

Note: The filter function is similar to a table. The filter can be better used if the only function needed is to sort and filter data.

Tables connect cells in a range and put it into a fixed structure.

The cells in the table range share the same formatting.

Note: Tables can be used to prepare data for charts and pivot tables.

Tables allow for options such as:

  • Sort & Filter
  • Formatting
  • AutoFilling

Note: Tables can be converted back to range.

Example

Formatting a range into a table will give it a new form with a fixed structure. Tables open access to new functionality such as: filtering, automations and styling.

Example (Converting a Range to Table)

How to convert range to table, step by step.

Copy the values to follow along:

Copy Values
  1. Select range A1:F22

  1. Click Insert, then Table (), in the Ribbon.

  1. Click OK

Note: The range (A1:F22) already has headers in row 1. Unchecking the "My table has headers" option allows you to create a dedicated header if you do not already have it.

Good job! The range A1:F22 was successfully converted from range to table.

The range is now a fixed table structure and new options such as sorting and filtering are now enabled.

Applying the filter keeps the relationship between the columns while sorting and filtering.

Note: Read more about Filtering and Sorting in previous chapters.

In the next chapter you will learn about Table Design.
