Thanks for your reply I have found it,

A table is an arrangement of information in rows and columns containing cells that make comparing and contrasting information in rows and columns containing cells that make comparing and contrasting information easier.

Just a suggestion.... when you design your chart use Excel, then copy into Word. Adjusting tables and charts once in word is no fun!

A:

Tables are organized in columns and rows such as this:

ABCDE
XXXXX
XXXXX
XXXXX
XXXXX
XXXXX

A,B,C,D,E are columns

The X values going across are rows.

To reference a coordinate, you would refer to it like this: A3 B4 C5 etc

You can also create all kinds of formulas using MS Excel. For example if I wanted to get a sum of the values for B1 through B5 it would be:

=SUM(B1,B5)

Get a good MS Excel book and it will show you probably more than you want to know about it.

Tables are also the basis for databases and can also be used when creating Web pages and are the foundation of many things you may be doing in the future...

BTW I created a table in code view to show you this example :)
