Nevada Culinary Institute. The following table outlines my areas of

Tables
The next step in composing the cover letter is to place a table listing the number of
credit hours for areas of concentration (shown in Figure 3–1 on page WD 147). A Word
table is a collection of rows and columns. The intersection of a row and a column is called
a cell , and cells are fi lled with text.
The fi rst step in creating a table is to insert an empty table into the document.
When inserting a table, you must specify the total number of rows and columns required,
which is called the dimension of the table. The table in this project has two columns. You
often do not know the total number of rows in a table. Thus, many Word users create one
row initially and then add more rows as needed. In Word, the fi rst number in a dimension
is the number of columns, and the second is the number of rows. For example, in Word, a
2
1 (pronounced “two by one”) table consists of two columns and one row.
To Insert an Empty Table
The next step is to insert an empty table in the cover letter. The following steps insert a table with two
columns and one row at the location of the insertion point.
