Default Layered or Nested Table difficulty--can't edit the table underneath

I am having some difficulty with a layered or nested able in Word 2010.

I downloaded a contract from a website as a PDF.
I used Adobe PDF online converter to convert it into a Word doc so I can edit it.



From what I can see it appears there is a main table with another table underneath it. If I drag the handles on the main table so that the tables are side by side I can work with both. But I can't figure out how to get to the other table when one is sitting on top of the other. I can see all the text, but can't edit it.

I think there must be an easier way. Is there a command sequence I can use to bring the table underneath to the front? In working with graphics many years ago I would use the "bring to front" or "send to back" tools. Do similar tools exist with tables? I may not be using the right vocabulary, but hopefully the concept of what I see makes sense. I'm not sure whether it's a layered table, nested table, or something else.

Your description suggests the 'top' table has been formatted with 'around' text wrapping and placed over the other table, which has the standard (no-wrap) formatting.

There is no 'bring to front' or 'send to back' or similar for tables, so what you're doing is probably about the best one can do.
