Landscape tables

I am about to tear my hair out - and not just the grey ones! - trying to
solve this problem.

I have several large tables, originally made in Excel and printed in a Word
doc.   I've converted the doc to Frame and now need to paste in the tables.
I can't get the tables in as landscapes and also get autonumbered table
titles into the List of Tables.  At first I pasted the tables into a
full-page anchored frame, and added each table title in a text box pasted
above its table.  When I tried this, the table numbers did not increment
properly.  Then I tried creating a landscape table, but the title box stays
at the top of the table in portrait orientation, even if I rotate the
table.  I tried following the directions in the Adobe manual for creating a
landscape master page, but my table still wasn't oriented correctly.  I
couldn't find an answer even in Tom N's usually helpful book.

Surely there must be a quick, logical way to put a table on a page in
landscape orientation, with an autonumbered table title correctly oriented
above it, while leaving the page headers and footers in portrait mode.
