The time will come when you need to put text into little boxes that are organized into columns and rows. Yes, were talking about tables here. As everyone who has ever worked on one knows, tables are a bit-of-the-unknown if you don't know how they work.
Getting all the columns to fit, making columns and rows the right width and height, and editing text in a table is not easy. So problematic are tables that Word has devoted an entire menu to constructing them: the Tables menu.
Fortunately for you, the commands on this menu makes formatting and working with tables easy.
This page explains how to create Word tables, enter text into tables, change the number and size of columns and rows, sort and format tables.
Construction of Word TablesLike so much else in Computerland, Word tables have their own jargon.
► A cell is the box that is formed where a row and column intersect. Each cell holds one data item.
► The header row is the name of the labels along the top row that explain what is in the columns below.
► Borders are the lines in the table.
► The gridlines are the gray lines that show where the columns and rows are. Gridlines are not printed they appear to help you format your table.
