Add ability to delete/remove table columns/rows without deleting entire sheet row/column

If we create a table and later realize we don't need the extra rows or columns, we should be able to simply delete the row(s) or column(s) that are no longer needed.

Deleting entire sheet row/cols is not a viable workaround in cases where there is data above/below/next to the table that would also get deleted if the sheet row/col was deleted.

(2016-08-03 Dan [MS]: updated title and description to clarify that sheet row/col deletion is not enough)

    I have multiple tables on the same sheet, two others are beneath the table where I need to delete columns. Therefore, I cannot delete and entire column (A, B, C, etc.). I only want to delete the column specific that particular table.
