Microsoft Word can be like a quagmire of features to the unsuspecting user… sure, it’s ridiculously powerful, but it’s nearly impossible to learn all of the ins and outs without some help along the way. Did you realize you can nest tables inside another table?
First you’ll want to create your first or “outer” table, and then place the cursor where you would like to place the additional table.
Now that you are inside the “outer” table, click on Insert \ Table, and then use your mouse to select the number of rows and columns for your new table.
The cool thing is that Word will show you a dynamic preview of how it will look.
All you need to do is click to select the table size, and then you can start adding data to the “inside” table and change anything else that you’d like.
Hopefully somebody will find this useful.
