Tip of the Day – Word 2007: Easily Add Tables by Drawing in Your Word Document

Create Tables to Your Own Specifications

Want to add a table with specific dimensions to your Word document? Here’s how:

  1. Position the cursor on the area of the document where you want to insert your table.
  2. On the Insert tab of the Ribbon, click Table, and then click Draw Table.
  3. Define the table size. Right-click to select the area where you want the table to appear.
  4. Use the mouse to draw the internal table lines the way you want them. To erase any lines you've drawn by mistake, press the SHIFT key, and the pointer will change from a pencil to an eraser.
    Note: The design tools in Microsoft Office Word 2007 give you plenty more features—for example, the ability to create other tables within those you've already designed
