Windows 7: Adding ROWS to an existing table in Word 2007

Adding ROWS to an existing table in Word 2007

Hi there
I've googled but I can't seem to find the answer here

I've got an EXISTING table in a document and need to add some more Rows (Word 2007).

In Word 2003 it was easy - you just put the cursor into a cell in the table and pressed the TAB key -- extra row appeared. Even in the menu there was a facility INSERT ROW / Column.

Word 2007 seems to makes a nightmare of a simple task (I'm normally an EXCEL user so Word isn't my main Office App).

I googled -- but couldn't find anything.

I got this info -- very good at what it does but FAILS because it omits what must be the obvious question -- Adding Rows / columns AFTER you've created the table.

How do I... Create and format tables in Word 2007? | Microsoft Office | TechRepublic.com

Hi there
That menu doesn't seem to appear in my copy of Word 2007 -- works fine in Office 2010 so I'll use that.

At work they switched (against howls of protest) from Office 2003 to Office 2007 which seems a lot more complex - I liked the old Office 2003 Menus.

However I've got a test machine with Office 2010 on it so I'll use that. I suspect that the Office 2007 install wasn't done correctly.

Thanks for the tip --it worked in 2010.

Cheers

Strange. I use Office 2007 at home and at work and have no problems with this menu

I just checked, and the right click pulls up a menu with loads of options, also hitting tab in the last cell of the table creates a new row.

Hi all
Discovered the installation on a "Shared Workstation" had got corrupted.

On my project now I have requested a Brand Spanking new Workstation -- (they are paying me a decent daily rate - so it's in THE CLIENT's interest to give me proper tools to do the job with).

I sent the old workstation back saying "I think it had a Virus on it" -- that always PANICS management.

Word 2007 working fine now. (Am also playing around with Office 2010 too).

Thanks for the replies.

Cheers
