Well spotted pj123!
Which Version of Word do you have installed and more importantly when it was installed did you choose the option to install the help files specifically for WordPerfect users? If not we can tell you where to find them.
In Word go to help and type in "WordPerfect" - It will list a few tips and tricks plus some useful help files.
Also type in "Working with Tables" and that should give you more specific information. Suggest you print a few pages off before you rush out to buy a book.
Post back if you`re stuck.
