The minimum row and columns that can be created when you use Microsoft Word will always be 1x1. This means that you can make one row and one column easily. This will make it easy for you to create a table, depending on what you need to tabulate or compare. The minimum amount can be 1x1, but you may always choose to add as many rows and columns as you please, depending on what you need. Just to make it clear, rows are the ones that are horizontal, while columns are those that are vertical. A lot of people use tables whenever they would like to show the differences between different items easily depending on the category that they will set for each column or row.

The correct answer to this question is D, 1 row, and 1 column. It is necessary for a table on Microsoft word to have 1 row and 1 column to give the software something to work with. If a person only needs one box, they would want to use a text box which can be inserted into the Word document. For a table, the 1 row and 1 column is the minimum. Most tables that users create will have many more rows and columns than the standard. The type of table that is created will depend on the purpose of the table. For example, comparing different things may be formatted one way, while having tables created for a guest list could be created another way.

The table that you can make when you are using Microsoft Word can be composed of one row and one column. This can make things very simple.

There are a lot of people who love using Microsoft Word probably because this is the word document program that they have gotten used to, especially since this is the program that is usually used and taught to people when they first start learning how to use the computer.

Aside from making tables, it can also be easy for a lot of people to create other things with the use of Microsoft Word. Some can also create charts and even create various shapes depending on what they need to do.

A table on Microsoft Word must have a minimum of one row and one column when it is created. This is so that there is something there to work with. However, if you only need one box, a text box is the way to go. For a real table, this is simply the minimum. Most tables have two or more of each, depending on the purpose of the tables. Comparing things is one way a table is helpful. Another table could be used to display different outcomes of different events.

To create a table in the newest version of Word, you go to the “insert” tab. There is an option to draw a table there. In that menu, you can choose how many rows and columns the table has.
