Using tables in Word can help organize content in different ways. When using Word tables can be used for text and numerical data.
The Insert Table dialog box and Insert Table button offer a quick solution to making tables. If you would like to custom create your table by drawing it yourself, you can use the Draw Table button.
If you make a mistake while drawing your table, you can erase both rows and columns by using the eraser on the Tables and Borders toolbar. Once you select the eraser, the pointer will change to resemble the Eraser button. Drag the eraser over parts of the table you wish to erase. When you are finished erasing, click the Eraser button again to put it away.
