7. Page Layout 101 > 7.3. Inserting a Table in Standard View

Inserting a Table in Standard View

While the Layout mode is a great way to lay out a page, it can’t do everything. You can’t, for instance, set a table cell’s Background Image property in Layout mode. 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 object. In fact, even if you’re sold on the Layout mode, 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 7-3) or by choosing ViewTable Mode Standard View. Then proceed as follows.
