  the layout and appearance of a document.
  Tables have horizontal rows and vertical
  columns each containing one or more cells.

  rows and columns, change their size and control
  the appearance of borders around them.

  table using the Insert Table button on the
  Standard toolbar.

  been created in Word
  using the Insert Table
  button:

  rows of two cells and
  two columns of seven

  coloured shading have
  been applied to the
  table and the text
  within the table has
  been formatted.
