Split Cells in a Table: MS Word

Dennis Faas's picture

Splitting cells is the opposite of the Merge Cells operation. The Split Cells feature allows you to split cells into two or more cells. To do so, select the cell, and then:

  • Choose Table | Split Cells.
  • Right-click and choose Split Cells.
  • Click the Split Cells button on the Tables and Borders toolbar.
  • Click the Draw Table button and drag a line to divide the cell.

Any of the first three bullet points opens the dialog box.

Here you can specify how many cells to create out of the original. The final bullet point allows you to bypass the dialog box.
