The table wizard can be used to make tabular fomatted information, like financial charts, or to just have an area with a different background colour.
Simple tables can also be used to layout your page into columns and rows where you can position images and text side by side.
Once you have a table, you can easily add or remove rows by right clicking and selecting that option. You can also right click to format your table or cells, such as background colours.
