In a word table with nested cells, is it possible to bring them into
Framemaker yet?

FrameMaker does not support nested tables. There are two workarounds that I know of:

1) Create a table that has enough cells to accommodate all nested tables and straddle cells to make the 'non-nested' parts of it.

2) To put a nested table in a cell of the overall table, put an anchored frame in that cell. In the anchored frame, create a new text frame; in that text frame, insert a table. Yes, it's messy, but it works after a fashion.

Hope this helps
