Default A table that expands as you enter in data

Is it possible to have a table in word that will increase in the number of rows as you fill in infromation in the available fields? I know that if you press TAB at the end of a tabel it adds a row. Is there a way to make it work with the /n (enter) key as well?



Ideally I would like it to add a row as the user is inputting information into the row above.

In a word, no. Word has no automatic 'row add' parameter. If you're adding data via formfields or content controls in the table, an 'on exit' macro attached to one of those could be used to add a new row.
