    I have a long document in which i want to insert several tables. My procedure so far has been to create a table and save it as a .doc or .docx file. When I get to the place in the document where i want to insert a take I create a section break, then "insert file" and insert the specific table.

    However, there is one table which i have not been able to insert so matter what I try. I tried inserting the .doc file, the .docx file, a .pdf and an object. No dice. The only way I have been able to get this table into my document is to insert it on a blank page (no problem), copy it and then "special paste" it as a .pdf.

    Does anyone know why this is occurring and how i can fix it?

    Also, as a general role, is it better to insert tables as .pdf s?

    Any reason you can't make the table in the document in the first place?

    Well, damn, Why didn't I think of that? Would have saved me a lot of frustration. Many thanks.
