Adding Table Header Rows or Header Columns
Use header rows and columns when you want to label rows and columns. Header rows
and columns are formatted so that they stand out from the other (body) rows and
columns in a table. Header rows consist of the topmost cells in each column. Header
columns consist of the leftmost cells in each row.
You can use as many as five header rows and five header columns. Multiple headers
are useful when you want to assign names to two or more header columns or header
rows. To format a header to span rows or columns, merge the header cells as described

Delete header rows and columns as you would delete any rows or columns. For details,
