The code below does copy the tables to a new document, but they end up as nested tables.  In the original document, there are 3 paragraphs between the two tables.  How can I unselect the first table after I post it in the new document, add a paragraph after the table, and then paste the second table?

Sub ExtractTablesFromOneDoc()
  Dim objTable As Table
  Dim objDoc As Document
  Dim objNewDoc As Document
  Dim objRange As Range
  Dim o As Paragraph
  Set objDoc = ActiveDocument
  Set objNewDoc = Documents.Add
  For Each objTable In objDoc.Tables
    Debug.Print objTable.Title
    '  Paste tables to new document in rich text format.
    Set objRange = objNewDoc.Range
    objRange.Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseEnd
    objRange.PasteSpecial DataType:=wdPasteRTF
    objRange.Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseEnd
  Next objTable
End Sub
