In 1.4.1 and earlier, tables are just a collection of text frames with
some special properties. If you made a table of one row and one column,
it would mostly be indistinguishable from a text frame.


Thanks for the explanation.
What I was seeing was regardless of how many columns or rows I asked
it to make it only made a box with 1 row and 1 column, which was  just
like a text frame.

It turned out to not be problem as after I reported it here I switched
to using guides to do what I wanted to do and that proved to be a
simpler solution.
