No wizard features are in Illustrator (honestly: thank you Adobe). You will need to get familiar with area text, or text in a box, and tabs. If you need to apply shading, then use rules or rectangles on a lower layer to add shading.
Some people find it easier to set each column in its own text frame. I don't like that myself, but can see that it's easier to create, just harder to edit and keep things lined up and consistent.
