Possible to make an anchor auto reproduce with a new page?

Here is what I have:

Writer Doc with two columns. One column has an anchor object that has a table in it.

I would like to make this the "default" page so that whenever a new page is created, it has two columns and the anchor object with the table in it.

Is this possible?

What is the contents of your table: fixed text (the same on every page) or variable text (different on every page)?

The first case could be handled with header/footer depending on table position within the page. If your table lies "close" to the upper or lower margin, set it in the header or footer and fill it with your fixed text. "Fixed text" extends to content generated through fields, as in the following example:

Table in header

This trick does not work for tables with unique content because header/footer is the same for every page under the same page style (whether explicitly set or not).

Give more details on your need so that the answer may be improved.

For the benefit of all readers, tick the answer if meets your expectation.

I'm not sure how to upload an image, so I have changed my avatar to show what I am trying to do. An anchor with a blank table on the left column and then a column of text on the right. I don't need the text replicated just the basic format of anchor(table in the anchor) on the left side column. I hope that helps.

The avatar is really small to see details :-(

It all depends on what you put inside your left column table. Once again, if contents is relatively constant, it can be dealt with automatic insertion from header/footer. Otherwise, your whole page is a two-column page, but there are rather annoying limitations with this approach.
