I copy league table from english premier league official website. below is what i got from copy-paste it into a text area quark xpress.
As you can see, rows and columns are pretty messed up. Now we line all them up in an order. Hit Ctrl + A (select all) while you are inside text area. Make sure all text inside our text area. And then hit Ctrl + Shift + T. This will bring up Tabs window which we will use to shape our table. See below
Drag the window in page wherever you like. Now we will add tab anchors in our textbox for tell quark xpress to how far it will place text after we clickted "TAB" key. You will see a Ruler at our text area. There is we will place our tab anchors. Place one by simply clicking a location on ruler and then click "Apply" on window. Dont hit "OK". see below
As u can see, The whole Column moved leftwards where i placed anchor. Keep adding and hitting "Apply" as the way you like. Below is mine
If you mess up, click clear all and you can restart adding anchors again. When you believe your table is in an order, hit "Ok" and close the window. Right after you created your table, you can add colors and backgrounds for make it more decorative. see below.
