Subject:Thank you for table formatting help in Frame From:Melissa Kucbel-Saumier <melissaks -at- EICON -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 8 Jul 1999 08:26:13 -0400
Thank you Melissa, Art, Joe, Beth, and Chuck. I now know that it is
not possible to divide a table cell with a diagonal in FrameMaker.
It is however possible to use the straddle function to display two
sets of information for one element.
Is there a program out there to design fancy tables (not good in
this case, this would be too much maintenance)? Could these fancy
tables be imported in Frame or Word? Am I asking for the moon?
Thanks again to all,
