Before you begin


You can format and edit tables, both basic and advanced, but some tables still perplex. What special considerations do tables require when they originate outside of Word? Does Word offer any quick, easy, and precise ways to format complex financial tables? If you want effective answers to these questions, you are in the right place.

In this course, you will learn how to get tables from Excel or the Web into Word without complications, as well as how to manage tables from these sources that are already in your documents. And, you will learn specific steps for formatting complex financial tables.
