    Can you describe why you need to do this? My own approach probably would be to have that text be in the table, but have it in a cell that does not have borders do it appears not to be inside the table. But I don't know if that works in your situation. I have never tried this but folks here have talked about it: You can put a table inside a textbox and then position the textbox to have text wrap around it.

    There are two ways to do this. The best solution depends on the width of your table.

    If your table spans the entire available text area (margin to margin), you can use a Text box to either side of the table (and can change the alignment of the text, if that helps you accomplish the effect you are looking for, using Format | Text direction).

    If the table is smaller than the established text margins, you can get the text to wrap around the table by using Table | Table properties. Then, on the Table tab, select the desired Alignment and Text wrapping options.
