    Adding/deleting a row in Tables (Word 2000)

    Is there a keyboard shortcut that will delete the current row in a Table? And is there a keyboard shortcut that will add a row at the insertion point? The only way I know to do these is with the mouse.

    Select the entire row and Control-X will cut it, this replaces the paste buffer, but it does remove the table row

    The simplest method is to move the cursor to the right hand side of the table, to the right of the right hand cell, and then use the Enter key.

    You're other option is to use the menu shortcuts.

    Delete Row = Alt-A, D, R
    Insert Row Below = Alt-A, I, B

    Re: Adding/deleting a row in Tables (Word 2000)

    Right, thanks.

    By the way, I noticed something odd in deleting a row with the method you mentioned (selecting the row and cutting with Ctrl-X). It works okay when I select the row with the mouse, but when I select the row with the keyboard, the only thing that deletes is the contents of the row, not the structure. Am I doing something wrong?

    You're right, I'd never noticed that before. I can't think of an explanation at the moment, it looks as though you have selected the entire row, but after cutting you can see from the Insert Menu that it offers "Cells" rather than "Rows".

    Russ has already given you some good responses. Additionally, you can use "Delete" to delete text only, "Shift Delete" to delete entire row, and "Shift Enter" to add row below.

    Whoops, I meant "Shift Insert" not "Shift Enter" to insert a row below.

    <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15> Shift Delete will Cut the selected row to the Clipboard which will be available for pasting and possibly fill the clipboard with unwanted material. Backspace will delete a complete selected row or Column and not place it in the clipboard.

    Thank you, Gerry. I'll try that when I get a chance. (It's been a very busy day--no time!) ---Russ

    Interestingly, backspace will correctly delete a row that has been selected by using the shift and arrow keys, unlike Control-X which cuts the cell contents instead of the whole row.
