I think we already had that problem discussed.
See this thread here:
My workaround in answer 11 then:
I cannot tell if this workaround will apply in your situation.
Your workaround however:
1. Export to IDML
2. Do the changes with an earlier version ( I suppose InDesign CS6 )
3. and open the older version document with CC 2015
is a very good one.

Recommend that you use the Type tool to scale the table. The Frame itself won't scale with it until you set a object style for a table.
If however you set the object style> Frame Fitting> to auto fit and also under Text Frame Auto Size Options> set auto sizing to height and width when you use the type tool to scale the table the frame should then scale with it.
NOTE: Tested this in latest version of InDesign and works perfectly.
Good answers and useful for me - but I think he just wanted to scale like you would any frame - in which case my method should work on a lot of versions of InDesign.
Hello! I'm very new to InDesign, and I'm wanting to resize tables (with text boxes) to fit multiple page sizes. Some have suggested that I use liquid layout, but I think that's a lot more complicated than it has to be for the simplicity of what I need to resize. Your recommendation seems like it would work for me, but I can't quite figure out how to follow your commands. Could you please try to explain it to someone who is more of a novice to this software? Thank you in advance!
Thank you! I don't understand why I received an email telling me that the moderator had rejected my post. Thank you for everything! You've been very kind and helpful! Hopefully I can get this done one way or another!
