Default Put table at top of second newspaper column after column break

I'm putting tables inside of newspaper columns. My first table doesn't
necessarily fill the first column, but I want the second table to be at the
top of the second column. When I use a column break after the first table, I
cannot find any way to get the second table to line up at the top of the
second column. There is always a line above the table, and any attempt to
delete that line simply deletes the column break. How can I put a table at
the top of the second column?

I think that the best that you can do is to select the paragraph mark ()
that is at the top of the column and then use format paragraph to remove any
space before or after the paragraph and set the line spacing to Exactly 1pt
(the minimum). You probably won't be able to tell that the table is 1pt
lower.

Another way however would be to press enter at the top of the first column
to push the text in that column down.

You could also format the paragraph mark at the top of the second column as
hidden text.

Hi Tony,

That does not seem to achieve the desired result in Word 2007 at least.

It certainly works here. Perhaps you forgot to clear the option to print
hidden text?

Use the same techniques described in
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/TblsFldsFm...ksInTables.htm. In this
case, format the entire table (every row) as "Keep with next." It will be
forced into the next column without requiring a column break.

Thanks! Using "Keep with next" works perfectly.

Right you are. I could have sworn that in earlier versions the button hid
the display of hidden text as well.

The Show/Hide button does hide Hidden text unless "Hidden text" is
explicitly checked in the View Options. But Stefan was referring to the
separate setting under Print Options, which is less likely to be checked
(and of course would affect only printing, not display).
