word can't line up text

I have a Word Doc (2016) that I can not line up names on the same line. What am I doing wrong? I tried to send it with grid lines, but they donít send.

Re: word can't line up text

Right click and adjust the Cell Alignment properties to match.

Also adjust the fonts.

I don't see cell alignment property
Plus when I put in grid lines the cell look lined up.

Re: word can't line up text

Right click on a cell, avoiding the actual contents of the cell. On your file it is not on the header row. (Word 2007.)

Re: word can't line up text

That is the context menu for the cell contents that comes up when I right click on the text in Word 2007. The W2007 designer looks quite different from your image. Maybe that context menu is deprecated in W16 but I doubt it.

Try this:
Select the cell/s you want to align.
Ribbon > TableTools > Layout > Alignment section

There is a patch with nine icons. Hover over them to see the description and click the one you prefer.
