Microsoft Word provides the feature for splitting an existing table into two or more tables. But the single operation will always divide a table into two tables. So when you want to split two or more tables you need to perform two or more split operations.

Do the following to split a table into two tables.

Step 1

Open Microsoft Word 2013 and create a simple table.
