Adding a table to a document in Google Docs provides you with a structured way to display data that is relevant to your document.
When you first create the table you are able to specify the number of rows and columns in the table. However, you are limited in the amount of rows that this table can include.
But after the table is created, there is a way to add rows to the Google Docs table, and you can even choose where those rows are added.
Our tutorial below will show you how to add a row to a table in Google Docs.
