I have put in a table in a document and would like to add text to the right/alongside it, but haven't been able to. Any suggestions please.

Did you mean Microsoft Works or Microsoft Word? Your title says "Works", but you've tagged the question as "word". – iglvzx May 7 '12 at 1:28
Oops I've posted an answer thinking it referred to word, because of the tag. Does anyone happen to know if the steps for MS Works is similar? I"m guessing the word processor is much more limited in functionality – prrao May 7 '12 at 2:57

You can change the text wrapping of the table to "Around" instead of the default "None". Select the entire table, go to Table tools > Properties and choose "Around"

You can then move your table around and add any text alongside it.
