Tables are preferred when compared to using spacebar or tab for alignment to give a table format, but Word has another excellent feature for alignment called “Tables”. This feature is used to create financial reports, catalogues, accounts etc.
Tables consist of rows and columns. The text can be typed in the cells. The size, shape and appearance of a cell are controllable features. You can also convert a text to a table and a table back to text. It also supports importing and exporting data onto a spreadsheet.

- Move the cursor to the place where you want to insert the table
- Choose tables buttonfrom the Standard Toolbar
- Drag the mouse to highlight the desired number of rows and columns in the tables menu
- Release the button. An empty table is inserted.
