Merge table rows in Word 2007 file

In 'Instructions below, step 4, there is no "Layout" tab or "Table Tools" in the Ribbon. I have tried several ways to select table, Ctrl-A, click upper left table corner, Select in Editing Menu - No Go

How do I merge rows? - see attached sample row. Maybe not a table? - See attached.



Instructions [From F1 in MS Word 2007]

 1 Open a Microsoft Word 2007 document containing a table you want to format.

 2 Place your cursor to the left of one of the first cells you want to merge.

3 Click and drag your cursor over all the cells you want to merge into one

4 Click the "Layout" tab under "Table Tools" in the Ribbon. The menu is only available when a table is selected.

 5 Click "Merge Cells" in the "Merge" group to form one single cell from your selection. Now you can edit the content of the table as needed.

 6 Click the "Microsoft Office Button," then "Save" to save the changes you made to the table.

Works fine, leaving me with many records with no CR/LF row delimiter and missing column delimiters!
