Table issue I have a table that has 7 columns and 5 of them are a group that together describe something. I want a click anywhere within the group of 5 columns to run a script. I can do everything but make the grouping work. No matter how I attack the problem the columns in the table are not lined up, except if I use a traditional table. Is there something that will help me here or do I attach the onclick to each of the columns and let it go at that?

You will have to assign an onclick function to each of those 5 column headers. There is no way to group those into another element.

Another option is that you can assign an ID to each of those TDs and create a javascript funtion that will loop through those IDs and assign the onclick function dynamically.

How can I create a bulleted two column list within a resume document?

This requires you to create a table. Look for a Table menu or menu item in the Format menu. You'll need to tell it you want two columns and five rows in the table. After you've inserted the items you can then highlight everything in the table and right click to choose bullets from bullets and numbering from the format option.

How to make a 7 row and a 7 coloum in a spreadsheet

Creating a table in Microsoft Excel 2007 allows you to work with that data independently of the rest of the worksheet. First you must define your table, though, which you can do either from scratch or from data already in the worksheet. The process is a simple one. Read on to learn how to define a table in Excel 2007
  • Start off by doing one of the following: Select the range of cells that you want to make into a table within your worksheet then proceed to Step 2 OR Start immediately with Step 2.

  • Click on the "Insert" tab at the top of the document.

  • Find the "Tables" group, then click on "Table." The "Create Table" dialog box will appear.

  • Type in a range for your table if you did not select a range in Step 1. If you did already select a range then that range will automatically appear in the dialog box.

  • Check the "My Table Has Headers" box if the data set you selected already contains the headers you want to use. If you don't check this box, the table will display default header names, which you can then go in and change.

  • Hit the "OK" button at the bottom of the Create Table dialog box to create your table.

    I can not draw a table in microsoft word

    hi ermelitacapa,

    To create a table in Microsoft Word please do the following:

    1. Go to the Table menu and select 'Insert Table'. The Insert Table window will open.
    2. Select the number of rows and columns you want in your table.
    3. Select the column width (up to 22 inches) or choose 'Auto' to have the column with adjust automatically, making the table extend across the width of the page.
    4. Select the AutoFormat button to select one of Word's pre-formatted table styles. The Table AutoFormat window opens.
    5. Click one of the styles in the Formats box in the upper left side of the window.
    6. Preview each format, after selecting it, in the Preview box in the upper right side of window.
    7. To customize a pre-selected format, select or de-select the borders, shading, font, color, heading rows, first column, last row and last column boxes.
    8. Select AutoFit, and Word will automatically fit the table to your page.
    (To manually change the width of a table or column after you have created it, use the mouse to place the pointer over the vertical line you want to move. When the pointer turns into a double-headed arrow, drag the line to the position you want it in the table.)'

    I hope this helps!

    How to write vertically in microsoft word

    Do this:

    1.Select the text you want in Landscape orientation.
    2.Click the Page Layout tab on the Ribbon.
    3.Click the arrow in the lower right corner of the Page Setup group.
    4. In the Apply To list box, select Selected Text or, if you want the entire document, select Whole Document.
    5.Click OK.

    Or, if you don't want all the text on the page turned, do this:

    1. Insert a table with enough columns to enable you to isolate your vertical text in its own column.
    2. Put the text in that column.
    3. Right-click in that column and select Text Direction.

    Now you can turn that text while the rest of the page stays horizontal. You can turn off the table cell borders so they don't print and no one will know the difference.

    Hope that helps.

    What is valency of carban

    The valency (the number of electrons in the valence shell) of the element carbon is 4.

    With most periodic tables of the elements, you can deduce the valency of all of the representative elements [the most common ones in the first 3 rows of the periodic table, and in the first through 8th columns (or groups or families) of the periodic table].

    You need only look at the top of each group for the number-letter code (for example, "4A" appears above the group in which carbon resides.

    A handy thing about the periodic table is that elements in the same group or family have the same valency. For example, silicon (Si) which is below carbon in the same family as carbon, also has a valency of 4. Another example is that all of the elements in the 1A column (the alkali metals) have the same valency of 1.
