Drawing a Table
The quickest way to insert a table is by clicking the Insert Table button and dragging the cursor until you have the necessary number of rows and columns. This is a good way to go if you want a table that has equally spaced cells, but if you want a table with irregular spacing you have to get creative. Selecting Table, Draw Table allows to you to sketch the cells of your table any way you like. Your cursor turns into a pencil and away you go. Word 2000 does a pretty good job of guessing how you want your cells to line up. It takes a little practice to get the cells just how you want them, but keep in mind that you can always select and adjust them later.
