    I need to add a table (5 columns, 7 rows approx) with data already in it that I have created in word. I do not want this table to be editable, just for survey participants to view. I do not want to use the Data Grid as I want the info all on one viewable screen.

    You may consider taking a screenshot of the table and adding it to the form using an Image field type.

    Alternatively, save the document in HTML format, and then add the table HTML code to the form using a Text field type.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    Thanks - tried with the html - but it didn't include the separate lines for the columns and rows?

    I would recommend you to use the classes that the input table uses, here is an example: 

    <table summary="" cellpadding="4" cellspacing="0" class="form-matrix-table" data-component="matrix">

                <tbody>

                  <tr>

                    <th class="form-matrix-column-headers">

                      Very Satisfied

                    </th>

                    <th class="form-matrix-column-headers">

                      Satisfied

                    </th>

                    <th class="form-matrix-column-headers">

                      Somewhat Satisfied

                    </th>

                    <th class="form-matrix-column-headers">

                      Not Satisfied

                    </th>

                  </tr>

                  <tr>

                    <td style="text-align:center;" class="form-matrix-values">

                      Static text here

                    </td>

                    <td style="text-align:center;" class="form-matrix-values">

                      Static text here

                    </td>

                    <td style="text-align:center;" class="form-matrix-values">

                      Static text here

                    </td>

                    <td style="text-align:center;" class="form-matrix-values">

                      Static text here

                    </td>

                  </tr>

                </tbody>

              </table>

    You can see the result here: https://form.jotformpro.com/72559081997978 

    The code needs to be added to a text element on your form, this way you have a formatted table. 

    I hope this helps.
