the scribus tables support is rather basic.

generally speaking, it's better to work with tabulators, as long as you don't need lines around the cells.

if you really want tables in scribus, there is an entry for it in the insert menu and a button in the toolbar.

otherwise, the easiest way of creating a table, is to do create it in libreoffice, export it as an image and load that image (at a big enough resolution, but not huge!) into an image frame.
an alternative is to export it as a svg (with text converted to path) and import it as vectors into scribus.

a better tables engine is in the working... but i'm not sure it will be really usable before the next stable release will be out.
