Hi, I have had the same problem quite a few times but I have found a way
around it. It involves using nested tables. Basically placing tables
inside tables. In your case I would create a table, 2 colums by 1 row.
Place your 1 colum by 8 row table in the first cell and just a 1 by 1 table
in the second cell. Be sure to top align all the cells in the 2 by 1 table
or you will have the same problem. If this doesnt make any sense just email
me and i will email you an example file.
