Chapter 13. Organizing Concepts in Tables > Creating a Simple Table

Creating a Simple Table

Word gives you several different ways to create a table, and a full set of tools to use after the table has been created. The easiest way to create a simple table is to use Insert Table on the Standard toolbar. Follow these steps:

1.
Place the insertion point where you want to create the table in your document.

2.
Click Insert Table on the Standard toolbar. A menu will display a grid of rows and columns.

3.
Drag the mouse pointer down and to the right until you’ve highlighted the number of rows and columns you want to create, as shown in Figure 13-1.

Figure 13-1. Select the desired number of rows and columns by highlighting them in the Insert Table menu.


4.
When you have highlighted the number of cells you want to create, release the mouse button. The resulting table will be placed at the insertion point, as shown in Figure 13-2.
