To add a new, blank table, go to the Insert MediaWiki Vector skin action arrow.png menu and select the "Table" option.

Once you've chosen the number of rows and columns, it will be inserted into the article so that you can add in the contents for each cell.

Pressing Tab ↹ will select the cell to the right.

Pressing ↵ Enter will select the cell below.

Alternatively, you can copy the cells of any spreadsheet (e.g. Excel) and paste them into the editing area.

Similarly, you can import an entire existing table by dragging a comma-separated value (.csv) file from your computer into the editing window.
