Unable to use HTML Table Designer in Complex table structure

We are trying to get the Census data from a web application, this is the table that currently exists:
Image removed.
it uses AngularJS to construct the table, currently we are having issues interrogating this table control using the HTML Table Designer, Robotics is not able to pick up the correct cells since this table is a combination of multiple tables, the hierarchy looks like this:
<table> Main Table
<tr>
<td>
<table>Employee
<tr>...</tr>
<tr>
<td>
<table>Spouse
...
</table>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
<table>Employee
<tr>...</tr>
<tr>
<td>
<table> Container Table
<tr>
<td>
<table>Child1
....
</table>
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
<table>Child2
....
</table>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
A Main table is created and each row has a <td> and inside the cell a new table is define for the employee data, at the same time this table in the first row presents the Employee's information, second row creates a new cell and then a new table for the Spouse, in case of having children then a new container table is created in a new row, this container table has in each row a child table within a cell.
When interrogated this is what we get, since Robotics is not able to pick the rest of the structure

I have tried interrogating the inner tables but same result, I'm not able to pick the values from those tables, to get the Data Cells, we tried using clones but we still need to do some more research on this, since we could loose the dependent references. We could used it by cloning the input texts but then the order and references get lost.
We'll appreciate if you have seen this before or if you have any thoughts around this.
we are using Pega Robotics Studio 8.0.2009.0
