1. In doc#1, put each table in a separately named text flow, where each text
flow name is descriptive of the table content. If you don't understand how
to do this, ask me.

2. In the other docs, you can import by reference any text flow in doc#1 as
a text inset. This produces the same effect as a cross-reference, namely, if
one of the text flows in doc#1 is updated, that text inset in all other docs
that use it will also be updated.
