Entering Data in a Table
You have ﬁ nished entering the header row—the row that identiﬁ es the information in
each column. Now you can enter the information about the various expenditures.
To continue entering information in the table:
1. Type weather stripping , and then press the Tab key to move to the second cell
in the second row. Notice that the “w” in “weather stripping” is capitalized, even
though you typed it in lowercase. By default, AutoCorrect capitalizes the first
letter in a cell entry.
2. Type $350 , and then press the Tab key to move the insertion point to the first cell
in the third row.
3. Type the following information, pressing the Tab key to move from cell to cell.

At this point, the table consists of a header row and three records. Robin realizes that
she needs to add one more row to the table. To add a new row to the bottom of a table,
make sure the insertion point is located in the right-most cell in the bottom row, and
then press the Tab key.
To add a row to the table:
1. Verify that the insertion point is in the bottom-right cell (which contains the value
“$10,000”) and then press the Tab key. A new, blank row is added to the bottom
of the table.
2. Type Insulation , press the Tab key, and then type $700 . When you are finished,
your table should look like the one shown in Figure 3-9.

Trouble? If a new row appears at the bottom of your table, you pressed the Tab
key when the insertion point was in the last cell in the table. Click the Undo
button on the Quick Access Toolbar to remove the extra row from the table.
