Scribus is not the tool for your job because it does not have good
table support.

The first thing I would do is install the latest OOo, which is 2.1 and
see if it fixes the PDF generator problem. I know a lot of work has
been done on that since the 2.0x releases. And since your problem with
OOo is just the PDF generator, I would try alternatives. I have never
tried them, but I know there are other PDF creation tools for Linux.
