How to insert a table in your post using Microsoft WordAuthor: Sara Shipley Hiles | Filed under: Instructor
There are several ways to make tables, charts and graphs. To make pretty pie charts, bar charts, etc., you can use Excel. This is best to visually convey information such as change over time.
You can also create a simple text-based table using Microsoft Word.
To start, make the table in Microsoft Word using Table>Insert Table. Add the information to your table.
Copy the entire table.
Insert into your blog post by using “paste from Microsoft Word” button. This button is in the second row. If you don’t see it, click the “Show Kitchen Sink” button at the end of the first row.

Notice if you click on the HTML tab, you can see that the blog inserted all the HTML coding for you. Nice!
If you just cut and paste without using the “paste from Word” function, your chart will look like this:
