Working with Table Contents
Getting rid of Word tables, or the text that is in them, is just as easy. Select the table by hovering your mouse over it until a plus sign appears in the top left area. Click on it and press the Delete key. If you press the Backspace, it will delete the whole table.
When you make a Word table, you can resize a single cell without formatting the entire table. Select the cell, and then grab the left or right border of that cell. Drag the border, making the cell larger or smaller. The rows above and beneath it will not be affected.

You can insert pictures such as clip art graphics into a Word table cell just as you would elsewhere in a Word document. Alternatively, learn how to add captions and indexes to tables by reading the Bright Hub tutorial, Working with Tables and Figures in Microsoft Word.
Finally, learn how to let Word do the math for you. You can perform a number of calculations in a Word table, such as adding a column of numbers or finding the average in a row. Read How to Calculate in Word Tables to learn how.
