Switch to Print Preview. Rest the mouse pointer on the upper-left
corner of the table until the move table handle (a square with arrows
inside it) displays. Drag it to move the table to the desired
position. Repeat for each table to be moved.

Dragging a table sets the "Text wrapping" for the table to "Around"
(in Table | Table Properties, Table tab). When this option is set, you
can use the Positioning button to exactly specify the position of the
table.

Note that, in order to place two tables side by side (especially if one is
inline and one wrapped), it may be necessary to adjust the "Distance from
text" setting in the Advanced Layout dialog. And dealing with wrapped
objects is always delicate.

Two other options that may sometimes be appropriate a

1. Create the appearance of side-by-side tables by creating one large table
with an extra empty column in the middle. This will work only if the row
heights in the two tables are the same.

2. Use newspaper-style columns to put two inline tables side by side.
Although, by using uneven columns, you can accommodate tables of varying
width this way, you do have to deal with the complexities introduced by the
section breaks required. This is, however, the best way to handle breaking a
long, narrow table into two side-by-side chunks because text in the table
will automatically reflow between columns as material is added or deleted,
and heading rows can be repeated in the second column.
