Using tables in Excel 2013 can improve how your spreadsheet looks. Use the table function in Excel to also better organize content.
Once you've entered information into a worksheet, you may want to format your data as a table. Just like regular formatting, tables can improve the look and feel of your workbook, but they'll also help to organize your content and make your data easier to use. Excel includes several tools and predefined table styles, allowing you to create tables quickly and easily.
