Edit your table
To resize table columns, just click and drag the column's border. To make other changes to your table, click inside it to reveal the table toolbar.
Here's a summary of the table tools:

Sort the table in view mode
When viewing a table on a page, you can sort it by clicking the sort icons in the header row.

Sticky table headers in view mode
In some instances table header rows will stick to the top when you're viewing a page, making those really long tables easier to read. There are a few exceptions, though. Table headers aren't sticky when your table:
- Is inside a page layout, inside another table, or inside a macro.
- Has no header row or there are cells in the top row that aren't marked as headers.
- Has a header column, instead of a header row, and scrolls horizontally.
- Contains another table, that has its own header row.
