How can I create a table in Installshield. We want to create our own table to store values to be used during the install. We want this table to exist before the build is done.

I know that you can right click on the 'Tables', in the direct editor, and add a table that way, but it is very unforgiving. There does not appear to be any way to make modifications to the metadata, (I know how to edit the data).

I know that I can "Create Table" in a script to create a table in the MSI file, is there any way of applying this to the tables in the ISM file.

If you need to change a table schema (column types and such), I think you can use the Direct Editor view to export the table into an .idt file, edit the file, then import it back...
