If by "outside" you mean "on the right or left of" a table, you must make the Table a Floating Object to do that.
If you must use Inline Tables, you can do this:
Add a Floating Text Box with the text that needs to be "outside" the table. Arrange, then Group the Text Box with the Floating Table, and then set the Group to Inline.

Command click somewhere else to let go of the object.

Or you may have opend a Layout template instead of Word Processing. In Layout there is no text layer. In that case you will have to use text boxes.
