Creating a Table
✦ Draw a table. On the Insert tab, click the Table button and then choose
Draw Table on the drop-down list. The pointer changes into a pencil.
Use the pencil to draw table borders, rows, and columns (see Figure
4-2). If you make a mistake, click the Eraser button on the (Table Tools)
Layout tab and drag it over the parts of the table you regret drawing
(you may have to click the Draw Borders button first). When you finish
drawing the table, press Esc.
You can click the Pen Color button and choose a color on the drop-down
list to draw your table in your favorite color.
✦ Create a quick table. On the Insert tab, click the Table button and
choose Quick Tables on the drop-down list. Then select a ready-made
table on the submenu. You have to replace the sample data in the quick
table with your own data.
✦ Construct a table from an Excel worksheet. On the Insert tab, click
the Table button, and choose Excel Spreadsheet. An Excel worksheet
appears on the slide and — gadzooks! — you see Excel tabs and
commands where Word tabs and commands used to be. The worksheet you
just created is embedded in your file. Whenever you click the worksheet,
Excel menus and commands instead of Word menus and commands
appear on-screen. Click outside the worksheet to return to Word.
