Urgent: How to make columns I can easily move between in an office program

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm not sure whether to use word or excel... but I need to be able to tab between columns.. I made columns in word... but I can't move between them (or I don't know how anyway).

I need 6 landscape columns that I can move between...

...it's for a nursing care plan I need to get done fast! (I need sleep :'( )
Assessment, Diagnoses, Planning Outcomes, Planning Interventions, Implementation, Evaluation.... etc. I just need columns for each of these that the text will stay in and that I can move between easily.

Thanks!

If you want to tab between columns quickly, use Excel.

And you don't even need to make a table with Excel, all you need to do is set the gridlines when you're done.

Agreed. When working this tables , use Excel. Why re-invent the wheel?

Because... when you type in excel it bleeds over into the next column but I need it to stay within a defined column...

...and in word the other "columns" are just one really long "page"... so to get to the next column you have to press return over and over, then if you change something earlier in the text it messes up your formatting.

Try this:

- Type what you need into a cell.
- Right click the cell > Format Cells > Alignment > Check Wrap Text

That will keep the text within the cell, but it will make the cell take up more rows.
