  • In that case, you could select the portion of the table you're interested in, copy it, then paste it into the destination range using the 'paste link' option with the 'Picture (Enhanced Metafile)' format. You can then right-click on the picture, choose 'Format Object' and crop and re-scale the pasted portion to your heart's content.

  • Word does not have anything comparable to PowerPoint's animation feature.

    You can use the zoom slider on the right hand side of the status bar to increase or decrease the zoom percentage.

  • Check your mouse hardware & software. Many mouse drivers include functions for magnifying a portion of the screen.

  • Thank you so much, but I mean that I want to take a section from the table and put it in a different location the document in a magnified form. I mean as a picture.
