Chapter 6. Enhancing a Document with Word > Entering Text in a Table

Entering Text in a Table

Once you create your table, you enter text into cells just as you would in a paragraph, except pressing Tab moves you from cell to cell. As you type in a cell, text wraps to the next line, and the height of a row expands as you enter text that extends beyond the column width.The first row in the table is good for column headings, whereas the left-most column is good for row labels. Before you can modify a table, you need to know how to select the rows and columns of a table.

Enter Text and Move Around a Table

The insertion point shows where text that you type will appear in a table. After you type text in a cell:

  • Press Enter to start a new paragraph within that cell.

  • Press Tab to move the insertion point to the next cell to the right (or to the first cell in the next row).

  • Press the arrow keys or click in a cell to move the insertion point to a new location.
