Lesson 10 working with tables

  1. 1. Working with tables<br />Lesson 10<br />
  2. 2. The goal of most PowerPoint presentations is to communicate information to someone, or to a group of people. The information can be communicated in various ways such as pictures, lists, or paragraphs of text. Another way is to use a table to organize the information. A table is a grid of cells arranged in rows and columns.
