Yes, Virginia, You CAN Put Tabs in a Table!
You may already know this, but it’s new to me. I have found that if I try to ‘Tab’ within a table, Word just takes me to the next cell in the table. If I am at the end of the table, pressing ‘Tab’ adds a new row.
But you CAN insert tabs within a table, and it’s very easy!
You will have to repeat these steps if you want the tab in other rows of your column OR highlight the entire column and insert your tab into the ruler.
These steps work in all versions of Word.
