Quickly move from one table to another in Word 2013

Going to a specific page in Word is a common task and easy to do using the Find and Replace dialog box. You can also use this same way to jump from one table directly to the next table in your document. You don’t have to be in a table to jump to the next table, just put the cursor in any paragraph or table and press F5 or use the Ctrl + G keystroke combination to open the Find and Replace dialog box.

The last function you can do is jump to a specific table by entering a table number in the edit box and clicking Go To.

You’ll notice I have typed in 5 this will go to the 5th table in your document, if there is a 5 tables. If you enter a ‘+’ or a ‘-‘ before the number, the cursor will move relative to the current location. This is a feature and comes to its own when the document is lengthy with many tables.
