Tables are a great way to organize and present columnar data. You can use tables for a variety of tasks such as preparing a budget, tracking inventory, presenting budget and sales data or even creating a monthly calendar. A table is organized in rows (the horizontal divisions) and columns (the vertical divisions). Data is entered into table cells, the intersection of the columns and rows.
You can use tables whenever you need to present columnar data. In fact, some people like tables so much and find them so easy to work with that they often use them instead of tabs.
To enter data into the table, click in the desired cell and begin type. Press the Tab key to navigate from one cell to the next.
