Default TABLES BREAKING ACROSS PAGE

WORD 2003/xp

I have a table that is too large to fit on one page, and so it automatically
splits itself onto the second page. However, when I place the cursor in the
last cell on the right of the bottom row and press tab, I get a row whose
cell margins do not line up with the row above. The number of cells are
correct (5), but they are all shifted to the left about 1/4 inch.

Default TABLES BREAKING ACROSS PAGE

Hi William,

Check your page set-up - you've probably got different left & right margins and/or a gutter, and the document is set up for mirrored
margins.

Cheers

Default TABLES BREAKING ACROSS PAGE

Hi macropod,

I have checked the margins on the page on which the table begins and the
next page on which the table splits and they are the same. Page
Set-up/Multiple Pages is set to "Normal." Gutter position is 0 pts on both
pages, and the gutter position is"Left." Right and Left margins are the same
on both pages.

Here is another "hint" from a 2nd table in the same document. The table
starts on one page, and splits itself onto the subsequent page. The split
occurs mid-cell. The half of the cell that splits onto the 2nd page is about
1/4" askew to the right (not the left as in the first table cited), but then
the cells immediately below the 1/2 cell that has split onto the second page
are line up with the table on the first page. In other words, I have a table
that starts on one page and continues on a 2nd, but the lower half of the
cell that is splitt between the pages is askew to the right.

Check the "wandering frame" discussion at
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Formatting...lyIndented.htm to see if
that might account for the shift.

Default TABLES BREAKING ACROSS PAGE

Suzanne,

I haven't thanked you yet for the reference to the wandering frame
discussion. At first, it did not appear relevant, because the wandering
frame was appearing in the middle of pages and not at the top, and also, it
took up the entire width of the page and wasn't just a little frame the size
of a deleted page number. However, using the technique described in the
wandering frame discussion, it was indeed possible to delete these frames.
You saved us a ton of work here in our office; we thought we were going to
have re-do a 70 page, detailed document filled with tables. Thanks. MVPs
rule!

Glad that worked for you. Sounds like it was something more major than the
page number frame, but at least you got it sorted!
