The layer is turned off but the table is still turned on!
I’m wondering how come the layer in which the table exist is turned off while the table is still turned one!
The screenshot and the file are attached.
Thank you for the help,
it is to do with the way your borders are set. Redo the borders of the table (select a colour and click the all borders button - left mos button on the border tab).
This should fix it
use freeze instead of layer-"off".

sounds that there is no direct solution for this issue!

Why? Freeze is the solution!
For just ON/OFF: it's as designed, the same as you can see e.g. for blockreferences. If you freeze the layer that a block has as it's insertion-layer all content of the block will get invisible.
If you just switch the layer off, the block-contents not on this layer will stay visible .... and that's usefull for some situations.
So now the layer is like a block. The table is inserted on some layer, but the content of the table is (I think) layer 0, so it stayes visible.

Thanks alfred. i'll go for your method.
When tables are created they are put on the defpoints layer, you can change the name of this layer to suit what you want then select all of the table and put in this layer, remember to turn plot on in this layer, autocad will automatically create another defpoints layer.
