Creating a Table

Most professions that use AutoCAD use tables to consolidate and display data in organized formats. Architectural construction documents usually include at least three basic tables: door, window, and room finish schedules. These are usually drawn in table form, and they display the various construction and material specifications for each door or window type or for each room. In mechanical drawings, the bill of materials and other specifications can be found in tables. To illustrate the AutoCAD tools for creating tables, you’ll construct a simple door schedule for the cabin.

You create tables in AutoCAD by first creating a table style and then creating a table using that style. It’s a process similar to that of defining a text style and then inserting text in a drawing using that style.
