Adding a Quick Table
rows and columns you want; or importing a table from another program. Each method of
adding tables has its own merit. A closer look at your choices shows that you can:
Add a Quick Table to insert a predesigned table at the cursor position
Choose the number of rows and columns you want in the Insert Table gallery and let
Word create the table for you
Use the Insert Table dialog box to AutoSize cell content and choose the number of
rows and columns you want to create
Draw a table freehand on the page
Select text and then choose Convert Text To Table to turn it into a table quickly
Embed a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet
The method you choose will depend on your data—for example, if you want to take
advantage of formula creation in Excel, use the Excel Spreadsheet method; or use the Convert
Text To Table method if you are transforming a data list that already exists in your
document into a table.
This section introduces you to each of these methods. Let’s start with the simplest first:
Quick Tables.
Adding a Quick Table
When you simply need to create a table of text and numbers so you can present ideas to
your readers clearly, a Quick Table is probably the easiest way to go. These tables are
readymade in Word 2010 and stored as building blocks that you can insert on your page and
customize as needed.
To add a Quick Table to your document, follow these steps:
1. Click to position the cursor where you want the table to appear.
2. On the Insert tab, click Table in the Tables group.
3. Point to Quick Tables to view a gallery of available Quick Tables (see Figure 15-1).
4. Scroll through the Quick Tables gallery until you find a table you want to use. Click
the format of your choice to add it to your document.
