12. Working with Tables

In this chapter, you learn how to create new tables from scratch and import them from Microsoft Word and Excel documents. You also learn how to edit tables and stylize table attributes.

In the past, building complicated tables has been a difficult task in any page layout program. Thankfully, InDesign CS5 now makes building tables easier than ever.

A table is nothing more than a grid made up of horizontal rows and vertical columns. Each area of grid intersection is called a cell. You can insert text or an inline graphic into a table cell.
