Create two independent tables side by side in writer?

Hello all, just as per the title. The reason I want to do this is so that I can enter information in each table out and have the row lines move independently on either side, I don't want them to affect one-another. In essence it will look like one table with two columns and multiple rows, except that all row lines in either column will be able to move without affecting the row lines in the other column; I don't want them to be "joined" as they would be when using a single table.

I have tried inserting a section with two columns into a writer document, then creating two different tables for each section column. However I run into a problem each time:

A) If I leave the "Evenly distribute contents to all columns" box checked, then when I insert rows into the first section column, they (unsurprisingly) are also added to the second section column, which is not what I want as I want them to operate independently.

B) However if I leave the "evenly distribute contents to all columns" box unchecked, then I am unable to select the second section to create a different table there.

How do I get around this?

Thanks.
