Is there a quick way to insert a table into my Word document?

  1. In your document position the cursor where you want the table to appear
  2. Open the Insert tab and from the Tables group click the Table icon
  3. Move the cursor over the grid until you highlight the right numbers of rows and columns.
    Click, and the table appears in the document.

Word Tables

The Table Tools Design and Layout tabs appear when the cursor is positioned in the table, with options for choosing different colors, table styles, and borders.
