Is it possible in Writer to have a table as part of a paragraph? In other words, if I had a hanging paragraph:

(b)<TAB>Some text, text text

... this is fine, but what if I wanted:

(b)<TAB><TABLE here>

Is this possible in Writer? The table would be on the same line as the (b) text. In Word, this is possible because the tables can be "floating". I wondered if it was possible in OpenOffice,org Writer. I did some searches for "floating tables", but no joy.

Any ideas, anyone?

You need to place the table in a frame. Select the table and then choose Insert - Frame.
