Creating a Table

A table organizes information neatly into rows and columns. The intersection of a row and a column is called a cell. You can insert tables by specifying a size, or drawing rows and columns to create a custom table, or you can create a table from existing text separated by paragraphs, tabs, or commas. In addition, you can create nested tables (a table created within a table cell), floating tables (tables with text wrapped around them), or side-by-side tables (separate but adjacent tables). If you decide not to use a table, you can convert it to text.
