Default resize table from A4 size to A5

Dear all,

I have a table in word doc form, originally in A4 size.
How can I resize and rotate the table to A5 size so that I can print 2
tables in a A4 size paper?
I can easily do that in Excel, but no idea in MS Word, thanks

ims

Resize an entire table

In print layout view (print layout view: A view of a document or other
object as it will appear when you print it. For example, items such as
headers, footnotes, columns, and text boxes appear in their actual
positions.), rest the pointer on the table (table: One or more rows of
cells commonly used to display numbers and other items for quick reference
and analysis. Items in a table are organized into rows and columns.) until
the table resize handle appears on the lower-right corner of the table.
Rest the pointer on the table resize handle until a double-headed arrow
appears.
Drag the table boundary until the table is the size you want.
Note If you are working on a Web page or in Web layout view (Web layout
view: A view of a document as it will appear in a Web browser. For example,
the document appears as one long page (without page breaks) and text and
tables wrap to fit in the window.), you can set the table to automatically
resize to fit in a window when you change the window size. Click in the
table. On the Table menu, point to AutoFit, and then click AutoFit to
Window.

Change column width

Rest the pointer on the column boundary you want to move until it becomes a
resize pointer , and then drag the boundary until the column is the width
you want.
Notes

To change a column width to a specific measurement, click a cell (cell: A
box formed by the intersection of a row and column in a worksheet or a
table, in which you enter information.) in the column. On the Table menu,
click Table Properties, and then click the Column tab. Select the options
you want.
To make the columns in a table (table: One or more rows of cells commonly
used to display numbers and other items for quick reference and analysis.
Items in a table are organized into rows and columns.) automatically fit
the contents, click a table, point to AutoFit on the Table menu, and then
click AutoFit to Contents.
To display column width measurements, click a cell and then hold down ALT
as you drag the markers on the ruler.

Please let me know has this helped You...
Thank you...

Default resize table from A4 size to A5

If you have Word 2000 or above, you can use the "2 pages per sheet" option
in the Print dialog to print the page twice on one sheet. If you have just
one page, you must enter the page number twice in the Pages field in the
Print dialog.
