Default consecutive Table Rows with different # of columns of different widths

I hope I can clearly and concisely explain my problem. Please forgive me if
I run on, and by all means ask for clarification.

Question regarding cell/column widths when two rows are attached.

Is there any way to adjust cells/columns to different widths, when they are
right on top of one another?

I can create 2 one-row tables with with various number of cells with various
widths. Between these one row tables is a RETURN or space if you will. This
allows me to freely adjust the widths to fit my needs.

The problem arrises once I DELETE the RETURN and the 2 tables now come into
contact with one another. There is NO problem resizing the cell widths on
ROW #1 or ROW #2, unless the verticle lines line up with one another when I
release the mouse button. If this does occur, I appear to lose the ability
to adjust the cell's width independent of the cell directly above or below.

Prior to the two vertical lines lining up, I can drag the widths freely.
This is obviously NOT a problem with a RETURN between the 2 one line tables
as Word interprets these as 2 independent tables. I have tried to click on
the verticle border of the cell I desire to adjust while holding down
various keys, CTRL, SHIFT, ALT (Which neatly allows free positioning, but
still jointly with the cells above and/or below) and combos of each of those
without any apparent success.

I would greatly appreciate any solution to this delema.
