Use tables in Word documents to display text and data, to help organize the elements on a page, and to create forms.
A Word table is an object you can add to your document to help organize text and other content on a page. It's simply a container that works very much like a closet organizer or that tray in your silverware drawer: it provides separate space for each of your important items so that things are easy to find, and helps you fit more without crowding.
As you see in the illustration, you can add tables to your document to display text and data, to create simple and professional forms that others complete electronically, or to help organize the elements on a page for complex documents like presentations and reports.
