Add a Table to an Email in Gmail


Add a Table to an Email from the Gmail Website

On a desktop computer like Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook, use the web versions of Gmail and Sheets to make and add tables to your emails.

To get started, launch Google Sheets in a web browser on your computer.

On the Sheets site, if you’ve already made a spreadsheet, click it to open it. Otherwise, create a new spreadsheet by clicking “Blank” on the site.

Click "Blank" on Google Sheets to make a new spreadsheet.

If you’re making a new spreadsheet, enter your data in the blank spreadsheet open in your browser. We’ll use the following spreadsheet for the demonstration:

Next, select the area that contains your entered data in your Sheets spreadsheet. Use your mouse or your keyboard’s arrow keys to make this selection.

The selected spreadsheet should look like this:

Now, copy the selected area to your clipboard. Do this by clicking Edit > Copy in Sheets’ menu bar. Alternatively, press Ctrl+C on Windows or Command+C on Mac to copy the table.

Select "Edit > Copy" in Google Sheets.

Your table is now copied, and you’re ready to paste it into an email in Gmail. To do so, open a new tab in your web browser and launch the Gmail site. From the top-left corner, select the “Compose” button to create a new email.

Select "Compose" on the Gmail site.

Gmail will open a “New Message” window. In this window, right-click the email body (the largest white box in the window) and select “Paste” from the menu.

Alternatively, press Ctrl+V (Windows) or Command+V (Mac) to paste your table.

Right-click the email body and select "Paste" in Gmail.

The table that you copied from Sheets is now available in your new Gmail email. You can now send your email containing the table.

To send the email, fill in the other fields in your new email window. This includes the recipient’s email address, the subject of the email, and the email body. Finally, hit “Send” at the bottom of the window.

Fill in email fields in Gmail.

And your recipient should receive your email with your table in it!
