Insert a table by using Quick Tables

Quick Tables are tables that are stored in galleries as building blocks. You can access and reuse Quick Tables at any time. If you frequently use a table with specific formatting, you can save a copy of the table in the Quick Tables gallery so that you don't need to recreate the table each time that you want to use it.
