Default Table Issues

I used the "draw table" option to draw the outline of a
table. Then I did the same to draw a table to the right
of that table. Only one problem, the two tables are not
separate. I don't want them to touch. How can I draw
two tables next to each other so they are their own
entity? When I draw the second table far enough away, it
still creates a column in between without the grid lines -
therefore linking the tables. I want to be able to
change the row height or column width in one table and
not allow it to be changed in the table next to it.

HELP!

G'day "Karen" ,

Create ONE table. Make the 'middle' column with no borders. Looks like
two tables, smells like two tables - HELL - it must be two tables ;-)

Thank you for your help - Only problem with doing that is
that when I change the row height in one table, it
changes the row height in the other table. I want them
to be separate.
Any other suggestions?

One of the tables could be wrapped, but I generally find it is easier to
create a two-column section with a table in each column.
