One time someone told me there are so issues with structural tables (Insert-->Table) when it come to ??? (I do not recall, when it come to sorting, or searching, or filtering). I do not recall. I tried google "issues with structural table but could not find clear answer". Would appreciate if you know any issue with these tables?
Thank you.

Calculations that are not purely row based are difficult.
Example, it is not straight forward how to have a running total in a Table, though it can be done.

In general, it is best to use Tables when possible. It also encourages creating a using a "proper data set"
Also, the most powerful analysis tools in Excel are based on a "Table" way of thinking.
