Default splitting cells

I have a table with 6 columns and 4 rows
in the second row column 2 to 6 is having merged cells and the resultant is
one cell

When I want to insert a column to the left of 5th row word is not permitting
due to merged 2nd row.
when I split the second row column 2 to 6 to match the original table the
cells are not aligned and I have to use my mouse to align the cells.

Is there a way to ensure that the split command will result the cells to
align with that of the original cell borders

Default splitting cells

In circumstances such as this, the best thing is to think ahead, which in
this case would mean starting with 7 columns.

Alternatively, select the cells in the fifth column of rows 3 and 4 and use
the Split Cells facility to split the cell in each row into 2. You will
then have 7 cells (i.e. columns) in each of those rows.
