word document

This is probably something simple but the solution hasn't hit me yet.

I assume this is a table in the attached word document, and you can see there are 2 columns, sequence # & quantity.

Hopefully I can explain this ok, but the second entry in the sequence column, # 2, needs the have the quantity in the second column, which is quantity column.

I need to put a quantity of one, but so far I haven't been able to get the cursor in the quantity column to type the # 1. The first quantity didn't have any problems getting the cursor in there, but I try the space bar, clicking in the quantity but the cursor doesn't show up for some reason.

This was a PDF file converted to Word, and has worked for me before, but on this particular occasion it's not cooperating.

Thanks for any ideas of help

Hi kevluck373,
 
I hope I understand correctly what your problem is.  This is a table alright, which consists of five columns but only two rows, one containing the table headings (or column descriptions), and a second, tall one containing all the content.  You'd just have to press Enter (carriage return) until you get down to the line, but it would be easier to have a row for each sequence item, as I have now done in the attached.  The file hasn't been built very well which I can understand if it's extracted from a pdf.  For example, it's very unusual having zero print margins.
I would recommend having the two sections at the bottom ("Business Office Use Only" and the one to the right) in text boxes which are positioned absolutely on the page so they won't move around when you change the table.  To illustrate, I've also done this in the attached.  Not sure though if you sometimes need orders stretching onto 2 pages or more though.  You can now tab through the table.  If you come to the last row, pressing tab again will add more rows which will start to overlap with the bottom section.  Of course there's ways to prevent that as well but I just wanted to give you an idea.
To remove rows, you'd have to right-click next to the respective row but to the left of it, next to the table (somewhat hard to explain without showing).

Thanks you two. I knew it wouldn't be hard, but this will save me a lot of time.
