How do I set up a template to divide a page into twenty equal sections that

are 1.7 inches square. I want to write coin descriptions on each individual

square.

    • Use a table, perhaps 5 columns by 11 rows. Reduce the width of columns 2 and

      4 so that 1, 3 and 5 can be 1.7. Reduce the height of rows 2, 4, 6, 8 and

      10. Then increase that of the odd numbered rows so that you will have them

      at 1.7 inches high. This gives you 3x6 = 18 squares.

      If you don't mind adjacent rows, you could eliminate the spacer even

      numbered rows altogether and use 7 rows, giving you 21 squares.

    • Thank you, Charles. A coin dealer told me that I could set up a template

      that would put 20 ( 4 X 5 ) 1.7 inch squares that I could write descriptions

      on. I don't know if I have that ability on Word or not. I might try your

      method if I can't find out how to set up the other program.

      Thanks again,

      Bob

    • I assume that you are using Letter Size paper (8.5" x 11") Set the top

      margin to 1.25", the bottom to 1" and the left and right to 0.85"

      Now insert a 4 column by 5 row table and then from the tables menu, select

      Table Properties and then the Columns tab and set the column widths to 1.7"

      and then go to the rows tab and set the row heights to 1.7" exactly. You

      will then have your 20 1.7 inch squares.

      Hope this helps.

      Please reply to the newsgroup unless you wish to avail yourself of my

    • Hi, Doug,

      I can do everything but set it up for 5 rows. I have a columns table but

      not one for the rows. Any suggestions?

    • The Insert Table button on the Standard toolbar should allow you to drag to

      insert the desired number of rows and columns, or you can use Table | Insert

      Table and type in the numbers.
