Can you create tables?

Hi everyone- Is it possible to create tables? I saw the Excel discussion earlier and agree that it is VERY desireable to import a table. But since we can't, can we create one? My need: I want to put a zoning table together for a project that lists all zoning information (yards, frontage, FAR, etc.). The text part's easy: type it in. But try getting the lines to array properly! What's the exact distance from one line of tect to another? Arrgh! Importing a table from Excel or Word would be great. That way you can get the lines to work perfectly. Maybe we need to import as an image. Any ideas? (BTW, just getting used to Revit, so if the question's simple and easily answered, my apologies.

BTW, tried the image import. Looks crappy.

Here's one you can dissect...It is an annotation family and you place it right on a sheet, drafted at 1:1 (printed size). I used labels and parameters so I could enter data on the sheet or in the properties of the symbol.

Chris, Revit can not import Tables and can not work with windows OLE objects but can work with images...so one way to insert a Table is to convert an Excel file to an image an import it to Revit...
