Now that you know how to move around in a table, it’s a good time to learn how to enter, edit and select data. The easiest way to learn is to just start typing.

Seriously. That’s really all there is to it. Simply position your cursor in the cell you want the text to appear in and being typing. Just be sure to hit [Enter] or [Tab] when you are done.
