If you’ve ever tried to make your data line up in an Outlook email, you’ve probably spent a lot of time trying to align it without much success. An easier way to do that is by inserting a table right into a message.

Insert a table

  • In Outlook, head up to the top of your screen and click on Insert > Table. A grid is going to pop up. This is where you can select the shape of the table that you’d like to insert into the email.
  • Click to select the rows and columns in the table, and then your table will be inserted into the email.
  • Just click into the cells and enter the data before you send your email.

Additional options

Insert > Table > Draw Table

Draw Table lets you draw a table into your email instead of using the quick-select boxes that we used above.

Insert > Table > Excel Spreadsheet

You can insert a miniature spreadsheet right into the email using this Excel Spreadsheet option. Here, you now have a way to actually compute data and enter formulas into an email.
