In my opinion are tables the weakest point in Scribus. Best is, if you create your tables with Calc and then save it as a pdf and import into Scribus. Just make sure the design of the table matches your layout in Scribus.
Have you first consulted the Manual? You can probably find the solution there.

I will ask the question differently. Scribus 1.5svn has the tools to create tables. Developers are planning to create tools scribus import tables and conversion tools text in tables and tables in the text?

Dear Arran!
calc does not help when the table takes more than 2-3 pages. At the pre-press editing publications, this will reduce the efficiency and speed.
Yes, the lack of tools to quickly and efficiently layout - a weak spot Scribus
