How To Draw A Table In Word

In a previous post, I told you how to insert a table in Word. Now that you have that down pat, I will tell you how to draw a table in Word. Yes, it is possible to manually draw your table in Word.  Me? I like to take the shortest method of creating a table, but there are some people who want to really make their table stylized to suit themselves and thankfully, there is a way for them to do that.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. Go to Insert, and select Table.
  2. Then choose Draw Table from the menu below the Grid.


  1. Note that your cursor will turn into a pencil. Drag it down and across your document to draw a box.
  2. You do not have to worry about your dimensions. You can always modify them later.
  3. You can start drawing cells and columns inside the box.  To do this, simply drag your cursor to draw them one at a time.
  4. If you need to add or remove columns or rows later,  go to the Layout tab and select the Draw Table or Eraser button. This will allow you to continue drawing lines with a pencil cursor or to erase existing lines with an eraser cursor.


Not so difficult at all, is it?
