Introducing the table tools
A table is a way of organizing information. Any time you need information in a grid format,
you can use a table. Rows run left to right, and columns run top to bottom in a table. The
small boxes in a table are called cells, and they can contain text or graphics. When working
with tables, you should be in Print Layout view. To work in Print Layout view, click the View
tab, and then click Print Layout in the Document Views group.
When you insert a table, Word displays the table tools for both design and layout. Using
these tools, you can design and manage tables. The Design tab lets you apply table styles and
borders, and the Layout tab lets you change rows, columns, and cells.
