Thanks for reply; i have indeed used cell mreging to achieve tewuired formatting, but as for 
sections, that's given me something new to play around with.

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
 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.
