Default Deleting tables

As well as selecting the table, select the paragraph mark after the table
and then press delete, or from the Tables menu, select Delete and then at
the next level, select Table.

Default Deleting tables

There is no table menu in Word 2007. The help feature tells me to click on
the table move handle and hit backspace to delete a table. That didn't work.
The 2003 and earlier Word versions had a "delete - table" command in the drop
down menu. Of course that's gone in the "improved" 2007 version. I've yet to
find how to delete an entire table. Any help would be most appreciated.
Thanks.

With the cursor in the table, click the Layout tab.

Default Deleting tables

Thanks for your reply. After posting my question I looked in various places
and discovered that there's a delete command in the rows & columns group of
the layout tab. I'll never understand why there's no tables tab, but I guess
this is one of those things I'll get used to with time.

By the way, I found that you can also delete a table by clicking on the move
handle to select the table and then either using CTL + X or choosing "cut"
from the mini toolbar that pops up when you right click.

As usual, there are multiple paths to the same result, so it's kind of fun
discovering some new ways to do things.
Thanks again for taking the time to respond.

Selecting the table (by the handle) and using Backspace still works for me.
