A couple of years ago we had a horrible time trying to use
WP tables in Pagemaker. I believe we ended up just remaking them.
One partial solution was to to save it as tabbed text and do
a cut-and-paste thing, but this involved some hassle.
What I'm trying to communicate is we had lots of trouble with WP
tables. I hope you fare better than we did.
BTW, we now use Excel worksheets when we need a table. Do you
have Excel? It might be able to import from WP, but I'm not sure.
