A document’s tables contain all of the document’s data. A document can contain an unlimited number of tables, and the tables can be linked together in various ways. A list of tables always appears in the left-hand navigator.
Tables can have an unlimited number of columns, which can be renamed and rearranged in the Summary view. Each column holds numeric data, textual data, or date/time data, but never mixed data. Special columns known as computed columns can store the result of a computation (such as dividing one column by another).
Tables can optionally hold one or more multivariate models, which describe relationships in the data and can be used to make predictions.
