There are three ways to create a table - using a grid, using insert table option and using draw table option. To create a table by using grid, choose Table and select the number of rows and columns from the grid. To create a table using Insert Table, specify the number of rows and columns. To create a table using draw table option, click on Draw Table option and drag the pencil to draw the number of rows and columns.
To insert a row or a column, right click the mouse and a drop down list will appear. Click on the desired option. To delete a row or a column, select the row or column that is to be deleted and click on Table choose Delete and select Rows or Columns. A table can be formatted by changing colours of table lines, applying shades to table, adjusting rows, resizing columns and changing alignment.
