That is absolutely briliant. Those key commands constrain me
within the table, and allow me to move around within it. To enter
data into a column, do I just activate browse mode and start
typing? I would previously activate browse mode, and arrow through
the table until I found the spot and start typing. That was a
really bad idea.

When I land in the first cell of the table I can navigate
the table in NVDA using CTRL+ALT+Arrow Key of Direction I Wish to
Go. I remain constrained within the table if I try to use that
key sequence in a direction that would take me out of it. I can't
remember the precise announcement, but it's quite clear that
you're either at the first/last column/row of the table and you
need to choose another direction.
I have no trouble typing in any of the cells I land in.
If you have a table that's pre-formatted with either column
headings and/or row headings you'll likely want to use the Set
Column Headers and/or Set Row Headers command (see the section on
Microsoft Word in the Commands Quick Reference), but perhaps not.
It depends on how well you know the structure of the table in
question and how confident you are about knowing exactly where you
are inside it.
There is also an Add-On written by Joseph Lee, Easy Table Navigator,
that allows you to create a "table layer" situation within NVDA
such that when you invoke it you can simply use the arrow keys
themselves to move within a table when that feature is on. I
just e-mailed Joseph about this add-on because the toggle that you
use to change states is not defined by the add-on itself, but must
be defined by the user. He says you do this after you install the
add-on by going to NVDA Menu, Preferences, Input Gestures.
I asked for a copy of the template because I cannot
imagine precisely why you'd be tossed out of a table when you
attempt to type in a cell if you're in focus mode when you begin
to do so. If you're in browse mode heaven knows what might happen
depending on what key you're pressing as part of the word you've
started to type.

Travel is fatal to
prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of
our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad,
wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be
acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth
all one's lifetime.
