Dear Svend,

Thank you for your example script...It shows that you can insert the
table, more or less "by hand", but it works.

In fact I was looking for some program which could create this table
automatically, so to say, and be able to place it in a specified
position.

   I understand that you are not aware of such a contributed program?

   Thanks for your great example anyway, Horea
