How to insert columns left to a table in Excel?

As we know, when we add data below or right to a table, the row below the table or column right to the table will be added into the table automatically. However, when we insert a column left to a table, the column won’t be added into the table. Here, this article will introduce two solutions to insert columns left to a table in Excel.

Insert columns left to a table by Table Columns to the Left feature

Insert columns left to a table by Resize Table feature



Insert columns left to a table by Table Columns to the Left feature

You can apply the Table Columns to the Left feature to insert columns left to the active column in the table easily.

Select any cell in the first column of the specified table, right click, and select Insert > Table Columns to the Left. See screenshot:

Now you can see a blank column is added left to the active table. See screenshot:


Insert columns left to a table by Resize Table feature

If there are blank columns before the table, or you have inserted columns before the table as below screenshot shown, you can apply the Resize Table feature to include the columns left to the table.

1. Select any cell in the table to activate the Table Tools, and then click Design > Resize Table. See screenshot:

2. In the popping out Resize Table dialog box, please select new data range for the table, and click the OK button.

In my case, I select the original table range plus two more columns before the table. See screenshot:

Now you can see two blank columns are added left to the active table. See screenshot:
