Inserting a table from scratch
If the terminology is foreign to you, think of rows as you would the windows across each
fl oor of a skyscraper. Think of columns as the vertical columns of windows on the same
skyscraper building. Rows go across, and columns go up and down.
Inserting a table from scratch
There are three basic methods for creating a table from scratch. One is to use the Table tool
to select the numbers of rows and columns you want. In the Insert tab click Table in the
Tables group. Drag the mouse pointer down through the Insert Table grid. As you move the
mouse, the selected table dimensions change, and Word shows a Live Preview in the
document window, as shown in Figure 9.2. Click the mouse when the table has the number of
rows and columns you want.
