Chapter 6. Tables > Inserting a Table in Standard View

6.3. Inserting a Table in Standard View

While the Layout view is a great way to lay out a page, it can't do everything. You can't, for instance, add a background image to a table or cell in Layout view. Nor can you add color to a row of cells, or even insert a simple table for displaying data. Likewise, if you're already comfortable visualizing table-based layouts in your head (or if you find the Layout tools cumbersome), you may prefer the basic approach offered by the Table drawing object. In fact, even if you're sold on the Layout view, it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with these steps so that you can troubleshoot tables more easily.

To insert a table, first switch to Standard view by clicking the Standard View button on the Layout tab of the Insert bar (see Figure 6-3) or by choosing View→Table View→Standard View. Then proceed as follows.
