Copy your Writer table into Calc and use Calc for the final formatting. Then 
copy the columns and rows of your table to the clipboard. Open a new Draw 
document, use Ctrl+Shift+V and select "GDI Metafile" in the dialog. Then 
export the selection to EPS. Unless your gs is badly configured, the 
resulting EPS will be imported flawlessly into Scribus.
