I tried to use openoffice to create a pdf with a table and import it in scribus but the only way I found was to draw a picture frame and then use the "get picture" function and select the pdf file. this doesn't work however and the picture frame displays only the big red cross.

1.Make a table as a single page document under OpenOffice and format it according to your taste.
2. Print the document to file. You will get a PostScript document.
3. In Scribus  you can try to insert ps files directly. 
4. Alternatively, you  can make a screen capture after Page Preview in OpenOffice and insert the 
table as a png picture, but you get some lost in  quality.
