Menu command Insert > Table/Matrix > New.  Now specify your options in 
the "Create Table/Matrix" dialog and press OK.

Move the cursor to the placeholder -- the little empty square -- at the 
upper left.  Type your entry there. Use Tab to move to the next square, etc.

Of course before using that menu command you probably want to begin by 
entering "data = " or some such expression so that what you eventually 
enter into the table or matrix will be assigned to a named object.
