How are you bringing your tables from Word into PageMaker? Are you
applying the text color in Word, or in PM?

I'm assuming you're using a 10% screen of black (in order to get grey)
and the text is also black. If that's true, there's no need to run
separate films for the screens and the text. They'll appear together on
the black plate (assuming you're doing a 4-color job). If, for some
reason, you really do want the text on a separate film, assign it a spot
color. You'll wind up with 5 films (the 4 process films plus the spot
film that has the text on it). I'm not familiar with Quark, but I know
that PageMaker will handle the separation without any hitches. You
shouldn't need to be "hiding" the text, and if you assign it a spot color
in PageMaker, there is no reason for the document's length to change.

As an aside... I was surprised to see that you're running a 133-line
screen on a web press. That must be high-grade paper, and an awfully
large print run.

If you want to move this discussion offline, feel free to contact me

Sometimes in the heat of battle . . .

I wrote: "How do I separate the type from the words?" when what I meant
to
say was "the screened columns from the words" so film can be made.

FYI: I work with QuarkEXpress and PageMaker for output to film, not Word.
