    I have found Phil's solution completely effective in MS Word 2010, where I had also experienced terrible problems. But I should add that when I selected the second table I had to do it by pressing SHIFT and CTRL and scrolling down, making sure not to overrun the last cells. If I used the SELECT TABLE option from the Word menu, the resulting merger of the tables was a mess, with the columns not aligned.

    Joining the tables and then saving as 2003 doc worked. Then I opened the 2003 doc and saved it as a 2007. Wow.....it works but is dumb...

    If you set the Text Wrapping for the tables to "None," merging the tables
    should work fine in either version (no matter which file format you use).

    Also, note that merging will be easier if you display nonprinting marks
    (using the ¶ button on the Home tab). Then you can see and delete the
    relevant paragraph marks (¶) separating the tables that you want to merge.
