Default Tables with captions across multiple pages

I have a table that spans 3 pages and would like to have the table caption at
the top of each page, is this doable?

It is absolutely doable if you're referring to the Heading in the first row
of your table. Simply highlight it and click on Table | Repeate Heading
Rows. If that is not what you're referring to, then put your information in a
header so that it will show on each page. I hope this has been helpful to
you.

Thanks Carol, but what I am looking for is a way to repeat the table caption,
not the headings (already doing that.)

Have you tried putting it into a Header as I suggested earlier? Or is it
something else entirely that you're looking for?

You can include the caption as a heading row. Or, if you put your table in a
separate section, you can put the caption in the header as Carol suggests.

Default Tables with captions across multiple pages

Sorry, I mistook header for heading row, regardless, the document has a
document header and the table has heading rows. Looks like I need to
manually break the table at the page break and add captions. For continuity
is it best to cross-ref the additional table captions back to the original?

If you put your table caption in the (merged) top row of the table, you can
select both that row and the actual heading row as rows to be repeated. Does
that not work for you?

Default Tables with captions across multiple pages

I am working with a customer template that requires the table caption to be
outside the table. I've just gone and manually fixed it. I guess I could
have put the caption in merged cells in the header row and deleted the lines
so it appeared outside the table.
Thanks for the different solutions. Still new at this.
