You can construct the Data type of a column according to your requirements by hovering over the column or from the “Table Configuration” settings of the specific column. Change the data type of a column to “Text Area” and add text descriptions in the column.

Or, you can decide the data type right from the start when you add a column to the table. From your dashboard, go to the Ninja Tables plugin → Tables (the table where you want to add Column) → Add Column.

  • A pop-up form will appear, and you will see the available Data Type here. You can choose from the various data type listed in the below screenshot.
All Data Types

This data type allows you to add multiple lines in a field. There’s no limit to adding the number of lines in a Text Area.

  • Go to the Data Type option and select the Text Area type of the column and add a column.

Select Text Area Field
  • Now a new column with data type has been added to the table. To see this data type, click on the Edit icon (right side of the table column). A window will appear then. See the below screenshot –

This is how you can add a Text Area data type in your column easily.
