Archived from groups: microsoft>public>word>tables (more info?)

Hi, I have three tables of varying sizes that I'd like to neatly align
so that they look like three columns on the page. I tried Word's
column function but that wreaked havoc on the tables. I've also
tweaked the tables' alignment, wrapping and positioning settings but
can't get it quite right. Is there any way to apply the Distribute
Horizontally function for images to tables? If not, is there a good
way to tweak the settings to get the same result?

Thanks!
Tiffany

Exactly how do you want to align the tables, or what features of them do you
want to align?

I generally avoid nested tables, but they may be the least-work option for
you. Make a three-column, one-row table. Put one of your tables into each
cell.
