Run a tab for this table

BY J. CARLTON COLLINS, CPA

Q: I use a lot of tables in Word, and it would be nice if the Tab key would actually indent my table data, but that functionality does not work—the Tab key simply moves my cursor to the next cell in the table. Is there a setting that makes the Tab key work properly in a table?

A: To indent text in a table cell, press Ctrl+Tab.
