What are the small circles in the
table cells?
Each table cell has an
end-of-cell mark , which
is a formatting mark
that assists you with selecting and
formatting cells. Similarly,
each row has an end-of-row
mark , which you can use to
add columns to the right of a table. Recall that formatting marks do not print on a hard copy. The
end-of-cell marks currently are left-aligned, that is, positioned at the left edge of each cell.

To Enter Data in a Table
The next step is to enter data in the cells of the empty table. The data you enter in a cell wordwraps just as text
wordwraps between the margins of a document. To place data in a cell, you click the cell and then type.
To advance rightward from one cell to the next, press the tab key. When you are at the rightmost cell in a
row, press the tab key to move to the i rst cell in the next row; do not press the enter key. The enter key is used
to begin a new paragraph within a cell. One way to add new rows to a table is to press the tab key when the insertion
point is positioned in the bottom-right corner cell of the table. The step on the next page enters data in the i rst row
of the table and then inserts a blank second row.
