Part V: Mastering Special Features > Creating and Editing Tables

Chapter 18. Creating and Editing Tables

  • Understanding tables

    A table is a grid of tables and rows, much like a spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel.

  • Creating tables

    Tables can be created anywhere in a document and can span multiple pages. Tables can be sized and positioned on a page and can have captions and headings.

  • Editing tables

    You can edit the contents of any cell, move or copy cells, insert cells, rows, and columns, and adjust row heights and column widths.

Word 97 has a very powerful table feature that provides an excellent way of working with columns or tabular data and for simplifying many other tasks. You can use tables to show lists of data, personnel rosters, financial information, scripts, and procedural steps. Tables can even include pasted illustrations that explain steps in a list, display side-by-side text and graphics, or present sideheads beside text in a document.
