Typing a Table in MS Word

Here is a short and simple way of typing a table, instead of the old fashioned draw / insert table command usually taken from the menu. Now for the purpose of creating table you can type a string of “+” and “-” signs. The string starts and ends with the “+” sign and in between we place a series of “-“signs that are required to represent the width of the column and press enter key and it’s done.

So we type:


Note: The string must be typed without double quote marks.
