Default How do I Merge Cells in an Office 2007 table?

When I am creating a table in Office 2007 and want to merge cells in a row,
there is no 'merge cells' option in the right-click menu as there was using
XP. The Table drop-down menu doesn't have it either. What other options do I
have?

Merge Cells is on the context sensitive Table Layout tab of the ribbon.
It will also be on the right mouse button if the cells you wish to merge are
selected.

Highlight the cells you wish to merge.

This will cause Table Tools to appear in your Title Bar (towards the right
hand side).

In the Layout contextual tab (just below and to the right of Table Tools) go
to the Merge group and select Merge Cells.

If my comments have helped please hit Yes.

Thanks.
