Here ya go Larry. This should do it.

Sub AddTableContinue()
' AddTableContinue Macro
' Creates a new 3x4 table followed by a hard page break.
ActiveDocument.Tables.Add Range:=Selection.Range, _
NumRows:=3, NumColumns:=4, _
DefaultTableBehavior:=wdWord9TableBehavior, _
Selection.MoveDown Unit:=wdLine, Count:=1
Selection.MoveUp Unit:=wdLine, Count:=1
Selection.Style = ActiveDocument.Styles("Body Text")
Selection.InsertBreak Type:=0
' Do whatever you like next.
End Sub

Subject: Getting out of a table in VBA

I can add a table using, for example:

ActiveDocument.Tables.Add Range:=Selection.Range, NumRows:=3, NumColumns:=
4, DefaultTableBehavior:=wdWord9TableBehavior,

After the table, I'd then like to enter a page break and continue on doing
other things - inserting text, adding another table, etc.

But how do I move the insertion point from the table's cell(1,1)? I've tried
collapsing the selection to its end, going to the built-in \EndOfDoc
bookmark, etc., but nothing seems to work.
