Help with tables in Front Page 2000

Help with tables in Front Page 2000

Help with tables in Front Page 2000

(OP)
I want to use tables with FP 2000 but i'm having problems with the entry of text in the table. When I enter the text the table will continue expanding. How do I set the table to only except a certain amount of text and automatically go to the next line in the same table under the text I typed without hitting the enter key? Does this make any sense?

Thank you for you help,

Andy

RE: Help with tables in Front Page 2000

Set the table or particular cell using width. Do some tests with text and determine the right dimension of the table or cell to wrap the text in the right location and then set that dimension. The biggest mistake people have using tables in FP is they drag the cell dividers which automatically sets dimension for all widths (table and cells).

Look at this code for an example:

<table border="1">
  <tr>
    <td>text here will be as long as the browser lets it get wide since i did
      not set the table width or cell width</td>
    <td width="75">text here will wrap at the fixed dimension of the cell</td>
  </tr>
</table>

Ok i will try that. Another question....How do I get text to wrap around a picture in a table? And what is the proper sequence to do that?  Do I type the text first then enter the picture in the table?

once again thanks for your help,

Andy

You are welcome...

I always develop the table, throw in the text then align the image to the text wrap looks good. Sometimes it looks better aligning the image left and sometimes aligning it right looks good.

Regardless, after you put the image in, select the image and right-click on it. Then select picture properties, in the picture properties menu click the appearance tab. To align the image use the alignment drop-down. I normally only select right or left. Netscape does not like the other options real well.

Here is an example of a table aligning the image to the right:


<table border="1" width="100%">
  <tr>
    <td width="100%"><img border="0" src="image.jpg" align="right">text
      text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text
      text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text
      text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text
      text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text
      text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text
      text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text
      text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text
      text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text
      text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text
      text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text
      text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text
      text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text
      text text text text text text text text text</td>
  </tr>
</table>

Mike,

Yes! All of the info you have given me worked exactly as you said. Thank you so much for your input and taking your time to tell me this helpful information. I've been working on a certain page for days now trying to figure out how to do this.
Once again thank you,
