    Mail app table

    I am tring to place a 13 column 5 row table in my Windows Mail app email but a) there is not much space to allow this due to the design of the page, where one writes is not very large and b) whilst I can put in a 5 col, 4 row table I can't work out how to change the size..
    Manny thanks

    Try using the Table functions to insert rows and columns as required. It might help to work with the message in its own window.

    Thanks Phic43, I must have been stupid not to have fathomed that out. I have made my table but am not able to use it as I need to merge cells. I was also hoping that when I sent the table in the body of an email the recipient could autofill and return. This, like all others, is not the case. I can only get over it by either sending as attachments, which I don't want to do or asking recipient to copy and paste into reply when they will be able to fill it in. Many thanks for your help.

    You really need to use a PDF which has those form filling facilities you require.

    In the Mail App - Zoom out to 50% will make it easier to produce more table columns and rows.
    You can then Zoom back in to 100% and scroll around a larger table.

    Thanks Helmut. The problem with using a pdf as I read it, is that the recipients need a program such as Acrobat, Nitro et al to be able to edit it. As this is a one off occasion to this group of contacts who are not tech savvy I think I will stick to the cut and paste method which I think they can probably cope with I will certainly use the Mail App in future for a different type of email.
