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. This creates your one column for the next column or columns after "+" sign continuing with "-" sign upto width of the next column and so on until you finished the desired number of columns.


Suppose we need a table which has three columns.

So we type:


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