Managing Tables

Designing documents can sometimes be fun, but there's always a certain amount of drudgery to some of the things you might be asked to do, such as design tables of financial data. So there was much rejoicing in the page layout world when InDesign 2.0 came out with its table features, meaning the days of painstakingly drawing columns and rows and then setting up tabs to put information in those fields were over.

The best part of the table feature is that you can import Excel spreadsheets directly into the document by choosing File, Place; you can copy and paste data into a table; you can convert tabbed text into a table; or you can set up your own tables and enter the information. However you choose to do it, you'll be happy the table features are there.
