Nested Templates - is this possible?

I am new to Smartforms, and I was wondering whether it was possible to to nest a template within a cell of another template. I can't seem to get this to happen, but I could be missing something. I have had a look through a number of other threads on this forum, but the opinions on what is possible seems to vary.

My problem is that I have a grid that I'm printing out with static text in it. Within this grid is a place where the line is split in half. On the left is a large single cell and on the right are a number of lines. Something like:

|--------------|------|--------|
|              |      |        |
|              |------|--------|
|              |      |        |
|              |------|--------|
|              |      |        |
|--------------|------|--------|

I created a line with 2 cells and created a second 3-line template in the main window that I had hoped to insert into the right-hand cell. But this doesn't seem to be possible. Some people have suggested that it is possible to insert a table into a cell, but I don't see how to do this, either.

I realise that I could create another window and insert the second template into that and line it up with the gap in the first template. But, unfortunately, there is a variable-length table higher up the form, so it's position is not static, so I'm not sure this is possible.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
