How do I get a the rows in a table to stay clumped in fives even if I add or change the data?I have a long list of data that I need to arrange in a table, and I want the rows grouped together in fives.

Illustrator -> Windows Files

I have a collection of illustrations that a client wants to use in MS Word. I have them in their original Illustrator 9 format, as well as .psd and low-res jpgs.

Is the best option to convert them to Windows metafiles? (They'll need to be resized depending on newsletter content.) How do I do that?
