If you want to move or copy the entire table, be sure to select the entire table first. Note that the entire table is selected only if the table end-of-row marks are included in the selection, as shown above. (You can be assured that the end-of-row marks are included in your selection when you select the table by using the option on the Table menu described earlier in this lesson.)
A table can be copied or moved just like text.
First, you select the table (or part of the table) that you want to copy or move. Then, on the Edit menu, you click Copy (to copy) or Cut (to move), and then Paste, just as you would for document text (or press CTRL+C, CTRL+X, and CTRL+V, respectively).
Caution When resting the pointer over a table, you may see the Table Move Handle at the upper-left corner of the table. When you click and drag this icon to move a table, it enables text to wrap around your table. While this is a fun feature, it turns your table into a floating graphic object — which can make the table and the document more complex to manage. Instead, keep your table easy to manage by using the Cut and Paste method above for moving your table.
