Hi,

As far as I know, watermarks are designed to ONLY be behind the contents of a page, and can't be brought forward even if you push the table, image, etc to the back.  That doesn't mean what you're looking for can't be done another way, though!

In the attached doc I removed the watermark and inserted a WordArt.  I then rotated it and set it to 60% transparent so it doesn't completely obscure your box.

I hope this helps!

As you probably realise, the Watermark is anchored in the document header and cannot be brought in front of body text. Text wrapping for the graphic can be set to avoid the image (tight, square, etc), but not to be behind it.

What I did was:
Select entire table
Select Borders and Shading
Select the Shading tab
Select Fill -> No color (Apply to -> Table)
Now, you can see the watermark except where you used grey shading...
