Create a Table

  1. On the Home tab, click Table.

  2. A default table identifier is automatically entered based on the last identifier used. If desired, replace it with another alphanumeric code that starts with a letter and is up to 3 characters long.

    Note: The identifiers UD1 - UD9 may not be used as they conflict with the command used to link User Defined Data.

  3. Enter the number of columns for the table. The maximum number of columns allowed is 208. Column cell numbering goes A->GZ.
  4. Enter the number of rows for the table. The maximum number of rows allowed is 999.
  5. Select the column type for each column. The column type controls how CaseView handles data entered in the column. The default selection is General.
  • If you are creating a table that is wider than the width of a page, you need to select the Enable wide-table printing option in the table properties after the table is created. See Formatting wide tables for more information.
  • If you are setting up a table of cells whose numbers are identical to cell numbers in the document except for the Table Id prefix be aware that there is a table relative logic at work whenever calculations are entered.

    For example, if you create a table ABC with cell c1 and there is already a document cell c1, any calculations in the table that refer to cell c1, will use the table cell unless you enter a precedence operator. For more information, please see the examples in the topic Table Relative Operator.
