In Gmail, there is no option to create or add tables directly to emails on the Email Writing page. However, tables can be copied from outside Gmail and embedded in emails.
In the following solution, we have used Google Sheets to create a table. You create your tables in sheets, copy the table from there, and then paste it into your Gmail emails. Gmail maintains the original formatting of your spreadsheet; This means that your table will look the same whether it is in the sheet or in Gmail.
You can also use Microsoft Excel or Google Docs to create tables in your Gmail emails.
Add a table to the email from the Gmail website
On desktop computers such as Linux, Mac, Windows, and Chromebook, you must use Gmail and Sheets web versions to create and add tables to your emails.
Launch Google Sheets in a web browser to get started.
If you have already created a spreadsheet on the Sheets site, click on it to open it. Otherwise, click on the option Blank Create a new spreadsheet on the site.
If you are creating a new spreadsheet, enter your data in the open spreadsheet in your browser. For example, we will use the following spreadsheet:
Next, select the area that contains the data entered in your spreadsheet. Use the mouse or the arrow keys on your keyboard to do this.
The selected spreadsheet should look like this:
Now copy the selected area to your clipboard. Click to do this Edit And selection Copy Do it in the Sheets menu bar. You can also use the keys to copy Ctrl + C In Windows and Command + C Use on Mac.
Your table is now copied and you can paste it into your Gmail email. To do this, open a new tab in the browser and go to the Gmail site. From the top left corner, select the Compose button to create a new email.
Gmail Window New Message Opens. In this window, right-click on the body of the email (the largest white box) and select Options Paste Choose. You can also set buttons in Windows Ctrl + V And on a Mac button Command + V Press to insert the table.
The table you copied from Spreadsheet is now available in your new email. You can now send an email containing your table.
Fill in the other fields in your new email window to send email. These fields include recipient email address, email subject, and email text. Finally, click Send at the bottom of the window.
The recipient should receive your email with the table you put in it.
Insert a table in the email with the Gmail mobile app
If you want to insert a table in your email, send it to your iPhone, iPad or Android phone, you can use Gmail and Google Sheets apps. These apps work on the phone just like their web interfaces.
To use this method, first run the Google Sheets app on your phone.

If you need to create a new spreadsheet, you need to enter the spreadsheet data in the spreadsheet that you opened on the phone screen. Drag the top left corner of your table to the bottom right corner. This will select the table in the spreadsheet.
Copy the selected table to your clipboard. Do this by tapping and holding on the table and selecting options Copy Do it from the menu.
Your table is now copied. Close the Sheets app. Now you need to paste your duplicate table into an email in Gmail. To do this, open the Gmail application on your phone. In the lower right corner of the app, Compose Choose.
On the Compose page on the box Compose Email Tap and hold.
