A table organizes information neatly into rows and columns . The intersection of a column and row is called a cell . Enter text into cells just as you would anywhere else in PowerPoint, except that pressing the Tab key moves you from one cell to the next . PowerPoint tables behave much like tables in Word. You don't need to have Microsoft Word installed on your computer to create tables in your presentations.
