Why isn't my table growing?

Many templates use the Table feature in Excel, which is a sort of fancy data set that automatically "grows" when you enter a new row. But if you don't see your table growing as you enter data, continue reading below.

After you've updated the example on the first row, move your cursor to the row right below it. Start typing in the next row. The table will not grow as you are typing.

You the need to hit Tab, or the Right Arrow key, or Enter, in order for the table to grow. See image to the right to see how a new row was automatically added to the table. Continue to fill in the rest of the table row.

The table should continue to grow every time you Tab (or Right Arrow, or Enter) after entering your data.
