For those who use Microsoft Word office 7, and would like to add tables (or box) without touching the mouse
all you have to do is type-
+-------+--------------+ PRESS ENTER ( press enter each time you want a column or box)
and Word will auitomatically insert a table (or a box for you)
The Columns (or boxes) will appear, where you want to be placed on the page.
You can then enter the data in the column (or box) and when adding adding data, you can tab from one column to th next.
To add a new row, just hit tab aain when you are in the last column to the right. You can add as many rows to y our table(boxes) as you want to use this method.
> The symbol + indicates a column break and the - - - - - symbols, indicate the width of the column you want the table or (box) to be.
For instance +--+ will only give you a small single column (or box)
This has worked also in Word 2003 and Open Office also.
