Default How do I enlarge a table to print over multiple pages?

Hi, I'm interested in making a large table over several pages that I can then
print out and scotchtape together to hang on my wall. Thus far I've managed
to make the type of table that I'd like but I can't figure out how to enlarge
it over several pages. Any ideas?

Good advice.

To enlarge a bit on the reason for it: In Word, tables can extend
downward across page breaks, but there's no way to get it to place
some columns on one page and other columns in the same table on
another page. Excel can manage that trick easily.

You can just copy the table you already have, and paste it into Excel.
It will transfer directly.

And if for some reason Excel is not available to you (for instance, because
you got Word as part of Works Suite), see if your printer has a setting that
allows you to tile large documents over several sheets of paper.
