Hi Christophe,

I followed your advice and consulted the Help Manual, 
which contains some useful advice on importing tables into Calc. 
However, I'm still reformatting my Word tables in Scribus line by line.

I can import ordinary Word documents into Scribus with ease by 
converting them into OpenOffice Write documents first, but my monthly 
diary (in a rather complicated Word table format) still seems to be a 
step too far for Scribus.
