Microsoft Word allows you to print a table in Landscape and keep the rest of the document in Portrait. This comes in especially handy if you want to widen your columns to make them easier to read. To so so, you'll need to select the table and then change the orientation to Landscape but only for the selected text. This will insert a section page break and will insert your table in its own page, in Landscape orientation. Any pages before or after the table will remain in Portrait.
