I never have to reinvent the wheel. And as a professional accountant, you can imagine how many different "wheels" I use every day! Profit & Loss statements, Balance Sheets, Cash Flow Forecasts, Time Sheets, Break_Even Analyses, Margin Calculations, Business Plans, etc, etc. When using your own prior work as a financial template, you get another benefit _ you are so familiar with the template that it takes you no time to figure out how to use it. And each time you refine it just a little bit more. So pretty soon your templates run like a Swiss watch! All the bugs have been worked out, you have tested it with many different clients and many different business scenarios and you know you have something you can depend on. Financial Templates as Tools _ For someone who is not a finance professional, financial templates serve a slightly different purpose. They still save time, of course, but they also provide a tool that person would have to pay someone else to develop.
To create a table in Word, choose Table from the Insert tab. Word will display the Insert Table pop_up. Use your mouse to select the number of columns and rows in your table. As you highlight the row and table combinations, Word will display the corresponding table in the document below the Insert Table pop_up. When you have highlighted the number of rows and columns you need, click the mouse button. Word will insert the corresponding table into the document. You can adjust the column widths and row heights as needed. Additionally, when you insert content into a cell, the cell width and height will adjust accordingly. Word also offers built_in table templates that enable you to insert pre_formatted "Quick Tables" into your documents. To insert a table using one of Word's templates, choose Insert > Table > Quick Tables and choose the template you'd like to use from the gallery. When you click on the template, Word will insert the pre_formatted table of your choice.
