Hello All,

I'm having Table issues in MS Word.

The problem is this:

I'm formatting a Spec Doc and a developer dropped a table that falls
way out of the margins. Nothing I do seems to get it to behave
properly (get back in the margins.) I've tried forcing it to fit,
splitting it, resizing, etc. The * -at- #!! thing just seems to defy the
rules of logic and common sense. Granted, when it comes to this
particular area, I am not a master of Word. When I ask our Developers
why they use tables so often I get blank looks and the answer: "What
else is there?"

So, I turn to you, oh wise and great Masters of All Things Frustrating
About Word.

Have you any advice about Table Wrangling?
