Difficult to answer without having the code of an example.
A simple guess: a \noindent before the first table is missing.
But if this were the solution, I would guess that the layout
should be reconsidered. E.g.: if you don't want to center
the tables, you might better put them into a flushleft'
environment. (... if LaTeX is involved; otherwise
\par \begingroup \raggedright <tables> \par \endgroup
or so.

Hope this helps -- Uwe Lueck.
