Hello I need to create the table like in the attached file. 

What is the best way to go about this, so I can easily keep all rows and columns aligned?

"keep all rows and columns aligned"

Aligned to what?

 

FWIW: If you like to build a table like the one from your JPEG file just set the values of left and right insets you are using throughout all cells of column the same value. Also the with a row: do the same values for top and bottom insets. And check the start value of the first baseline in all cells to be the same.

 

What did you try and is not working as expected?

Could you show a screenshot of that with hidden characters visible and also frame edges?

 

Thanks,
Uwe Laubender

Use InDesign's Table feature, with various settings, as Uwe mentions. 

Are you using the Table feature, and having trouble with it? Or, if just getting started, check it out. I have a course on LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com) how to use this feature: http://bit.ly/IDTables

I could use the table function but not sure how to resize the column width as they need to be different sizes, would also need the table lines to not be visible. Would this be possible?

Absolutely. Not difficult at all. You can easily control all these settings. If you can't view the video lessons I posted, try to find some basic table tutorials.
