Default Word dosn't allow table formatting


Hi I have copied a table from a website into Word 2016. The table is wider than the page but I can not grab the end to slide it onto the page.

Document attached.

Right click on the last column and choose Table Properties from the context menu (near the bottom). You can then change the width of the column. If it has a preferred width set just uncheck the box. The column will width then adjust to fit the page.

Click in the table. On the (Table) Layout tab, click AutoFit, and then choose AutoFit Window. This will resize the table so that it fits between the page margins. To get back the fixed width, you can then click Layout > AutoFit > Fixed Column Width.
