That's what I would do.

I turned on the messageMessages to see what messages are fired when 
using a table object. I got these:
revCalculateCellLoc
revCalculateCellRect
revCalculateCellSpacing
revCellDelay
revCreateCellField
revDeleteCellFields
revGetCellName
revGetCellRect
revMoveCellDirection
revMoveCellDown
revMoveCellRight
revReadCellValue
revUpdateCellValue
revWriteCellField
