Producing tables in layout view

Discussion created by rom82 on Feb 7, 2013
I'm relatively new to ArcGIS, I'm using 10.1 to produce a map of habitats in a region. One version of the map will be for print only and requires that the habitats are overlayed on an aerial photo with a table naming the habitats and their respective areas. For some reason I can't seem to find how to produce such a table - I have a legend with habitat names and I have areas calculated in the attributes table but I just can't find how to join them to make an output for layout view.

I know it seems like a minor complaint but no amount of time or Googling is getting me anywhere! Any help is greatly appreciated.
