Ive found out how to resize tables so they don't take up the full page width (though to be honest i usually find it easier and more flexible to simply include an additional empty column to right and left and adjust widths as required) but what i would really like to be able to do is to have two (or perhaps more) tables juxtaposed horizontally. Is there a way to align tables horizontally (without resorting to frames, which i tend to find are a right pain in the proverbials)?

o Insert a Section.
o In the section, choose the appropriate number of columns. This applies with your section only, not the whole page or document.
o Insert your table in the first section.
o Insert a column break in order to move the insertion point to the next column.
o Insert your second table.
o Etc.

PS to previous post
I know i could do this by having one "giant" table and just leaving some empty columns &/or rows but it would be more flexible to have two tables as then they could for example have different row heights if necessary.

You can achieve some of this by judicial merging of table cells - in this case cells within the one column of the table but not others, or differently in different columns.

I trust this helps.
