Word may not accept the table well – often the right portion disappears off the page. To fix this, click in the table, then look in the upper left hand corner for the icon that looks like a plus sign as highlighted in the next image.  This will be to the upper left of the table.  Right click on the icon, then choose Autofit, then choose Autofit to Window.


 Mac users: 

  • Highlight the table
  • Click on Table in top menu bar
  • Choose Autofit and Distribute
