 thanks all for replying.
 option 3 sounds OK but how do I import the ps file? If i create a ps file with openoffice I get an error saying: Impporting file "..." failed!
 If I try importing a pdf file into a picture frame nothing happens as I said before. The frame just contains the big red cross.

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.
