What I am suggesting is that perhaps rather than going about it the way 
you might originally wish to, you can add a frame at the end, then 
insert the table or whatever in the middle, with adjustments in frame 
size(s) to accomplish your desired goal. I would think that if you 
insert a frame midstream there are going to be unexpected consequences 
in spillover anyway.
