[texhax] Modifying margins for large tables/figures

Hi.  I am running MiKTeX 2.5 in Windows.  I am attempting to print some very large tables within a report and am finding it difficult to change the margins selectively for the pages containing the tables.  Note that I want the default TeX margins for all pages excepting those containing the set of large tables.  I have looked at the information on margins as well as several packages such as the geometry package but all seem to require the changes to occur at the document level.  I have also tried the chngpage package but it seems to leave the margins untouched for the table while typed text is placed within the new, modified margins. Are there commands/packages that allow a user to change the margins selectively for tables/figures or is there a way to have a separate file with its own document class and thus a separate compile included within a larger document with a different document class?  Thanks for the assistance!

We must come down from our heights, and leave our straight paths for the by-ways and low places of life, if we would learn truth by strong contrasts; and in hovels, in forecastles, and among our own outcasts in foreign lands, see what has been wrought among our fellow creatures by accident, hardship, or vice."-Richard Dana in Two Years Before the Mast
