Tables in a form provide a layout to similar fields that need to be grouped together for a similar purpose. After you add a table component to a form, you need to add other components inside it to build the form.

For example, a form for medical history can have a table for marking current and past conditions in two columns of a table.

To view an example of this component, from sample forms, visit the Medical History form. Under Female hormone review, there is a table listing fields for different conditions.

  1. From the Tools list, drag the Table component onto the form.

  2. To edit the component, place the mouse pointer over the component and click Edit.

  3. Under the Basic tab, customize the details listed below:

    • To name the field, in the Label field, enter a label.

    • To add the number of rows and columns to the table, in the Number of rows and Number of columns fields, enter the number of rows and columns.

    • Select the cell alignment.

    If you want to customize other settings, refer to the table below.

  4. Click Save.
