The document is now structured the way Robin wants it. Next you need to create a
table summarizing her data on probable expenditures.
Inserting a Blank Table
A table is a useful way to present information that is organized into categories, or fi elds .
For example, you could use a table to organize contact information for a list of clients.
For each client, you could include information in the following fi elds: fi rst name, last
name, street address, city, state, and zip code. The complete set of information about a
particular client is called a record In a typical table, each column is a separate fi eld, .
and each row is a record. A row at the top, called the header row , contains the names of
each fi eld.
You can also use a table to lay out text and graphics on the page. You’ll have a chance
to use a table in this way in the Case Problems at the end of this tutorial.
For Robin’s report, you need to create a table to organize information in rows and
columns. The sketch in Figure 3-6 shows what Robin wants the table to look like. It includes
two columns, or fi elds: Item and Materials Cost. It includes a header row, containing the
names of the two fi elds, and three rows, or records.
