Creating a Table
Cell: The box that is formed where a row and column intersect. Each cell
holds one data item.
Header row: The name of the labels along the top row that explain what
is in the columns below.
Row labels: The labels in the first column that describe what is in
each row.
Borders: The lines in the table that define where the rows and
columns are.
Gridlines: The gray lines that show where the columns and rows are.
Unless you’ve drawn borders around all the cells in a table, you can’t tell
where rows and columns begin and end without gridlines. To display or
hide the gridlines, go to the (Table Tools) Layout tab and click the View
Gridlines button.
