Editing in a Table

After you create a new empty table, the next step is to put something in it—and that can be anything you want: text, graphics, you name it.

When Word creates a new table, it positions the insertion point in the table's first cell. Typing in a table is similar to typing anywhere else in a document, with a few significant exceptions. Unless you selected AutoFit to Contents when you created the table, when you reach the right edge of a cell, Word wraps text back to the left edge, as if you were at the end of a line. Also, some keystrokes behave differently within a table. In particular, pressing Tab within a table cell moves you to the next cell; if you need a conventional tab, press Ctrl+Tab instead.
