Once you have created your table, you may find that you need to format text within your table, insert or delete rows and columns, or simply change the appearance of your table so it's more visually appealing.
Fortunately, whatever you do to format text in a paragraph (make it bold green, for example), you can do to text in a table cell. Formatting text within a table can be accomplished in several ways, including the Formatting menu, the Tables and Borders toolbar, the task pane, and keyboard shortcuts.
Many advertisements, for-sale signs, menus, and other creative documents use Word's text direction feature to change typical horizontal text to eye-catching vertical text. You can rotate text so it runs vertically, facing either to the right or left.
The insertion point rotates when entering vertical text, but editing vertical text is the same as editing horizontal text.
