How to Add a Table in Google Docs
Here’s our step-by-step guide on how to add a table in google docs.
First, open a new or existing document where you want to place a table.
Next, click on Insert > Table to access the grid that will determine the number of rows and columns in your table.

You can drag the borders between columns to change the column width.
We can also drag the borders between rows to change the row heights.
You can right-click on any cell to access the Insert options. You can choose to insert a row above or below the current row. Or you can choose to insert a column to the left or right of the current column.
Hovering over the cell will also reveal similar icons.
We can right-click on a cell in a specific row to find the option to delete that row. We can also use the same method to delete a specific column.
Google Docs tables are also able to be sorted by a specific column.
In this example, we’ve sorted our names column alphabetically.
We can pin a header row to prevent it from moving when adding a sort.
In the example below, we’ve pinned the first row o keep the values from moving around when sorting our values.
