Creating Conventional Tables

Though you might want to reference and analyze information, the best way to initially display large amounts of data is through the use of tables. Tables are defined by their various components; the cell, the row, and the column. The number of rows determines the height of the table, and the number of columns the width. The combination of the two determines the total number of cells that can hold information. You can also create a table by drawing it, using the Draw Table feature on the Tables toolbar. You can create the table by drawing each individual cell. This is useful when you want to create a custom table.
