To create a table within a table
can create a table within a table that is independent from the main
table. For example, the nested table can have a different number
of columns and rows than the main table. There is no limit to the
number of levels that you can nest tables.
If you want a table to automatically flow to the next page, you
must ensure the following conditions:
The table must be in a subform that is set to Flowed
in the Subform tab of the Object palette.
The Allow Page Breaks Within Content option is selected in
the Table tab.
The table is not in a group.
Create a table. See To create a simple table.
In the Object Library palette, click the Standard category
and drag the Table object into a cell in the main table.
Note: If you selected Don’t Show This Again in the Insert Table dialog box, when you select the Table object from the Object Library palette, Designer automatically inserts a table with the same number of columns and rows that you inserted the last time you used the Insert Table dialog box.
In the Insert Table dialog box, enter the number of columns
You can enter a maximum of 20 columns and 50 rows.
You can add more columns and rows after the table is created by
using the Insert commands on the Table menu.

Note: If you have an existing table, you can select the table and drag it to the cell where you want it to appear.
