PERRLA for Word on Mac makes it simple to create perfectly formatted Tables.
How it works
To start, you’ll need to have your paper open in PERRLA and go to the Paper’s Body tab in PERRLA. Once you're there, you're just a few clicks away from a perfect table.
- Place the cursor in Word where you want the table to be
- Click Insert a New Table in the PERRLA Paper's Body tab
- Set the table options
You can select the number of rows, columns, table title, and any notes.
- Click Insert New Table
PERRLA will build your table to your specifications, ready to be filled in.
This table style PERRLA uses is approved for both APA and MLA papers. It includes a Table number, a line for your Table Title, an underlined row for your header, a number of rows for the content of your table, and a final optional section for Table notes.
Once your table is created, you can edit, tweak, or adjust it however you’d like in Word. PERRLA gets it set up for you and then you control it in your paper.
As you add new tables, we’ll automatically update the Table numbers for you - even if you add a table between two others.
Deleting a table
You can delete a table from your paper by simply highlighting and deleting it in Word.
Be sure to update the Table numbers in Word by highlighting the Table number, right-clicking it, and click Update Field.
While PERRLA can update the Table numbers when adding tables, you’ll need to update them in Word if you delete one.
Also, if you’ve referenced a Table in your text, make sure it is correct as you add and delete other tables.
