"How to Insert a Table into the Word 2007 Document?"


There are three ways to insert a table in Word 2007 document:

1) Clicking the Table button creates a table with the number of columns and rows you select from the grid, with all the cells of equal size.

2) You can use the Insert Table dialog box, where you can specify the number of rows and columns as well as their sizes.

3) You can also create a table by drawing cells the size you want.

When table was created, you can then enter text, numbers, and graphics into the table's cells, which are the boxes at the intersections of a row and a column.
