Chapter 9. Using Columns and Tables

In this part, you learn two different ways of arranging columns of text on the page. Word's Columns feature lets you create “newspaper-style” columns, in which the text wraps from one column to the next. You might use columns for your office newsletter or a brochure. The Tables feature, in contrast, is great for creating columns of text that do not wrap. Tables are useful for creating everything from simple charts to resumes and invoices.
