Default Flowing Table Position in Document

I have a document with many tables. Some of them want to lock into a
position on the page and won't flow with the text, while others will. In
those that will flow, the position button is grayed out in the table
properties, but it is active in those that won't flow with the text. I have
the vertical position set to 0" relative to the paragraph and the option to
move with text, but it still wants to be on the next page from where I want
it. See attached image.

In the paragraph settings for the text, the line and page breaks are
unchecked.

How do I get the table to flow once it has been set to position? Do I need
to redo my table and delete the original?

Default Flowing Table Position in Document

Hi Brad,

What you should have noticed is that for the tables that don't flow,
the text wrapping (the two big buttons to the left of the Positioning
button) is set to Around. The ones that do flow are set to None, which
is what all of your tables should be set to for the effect you want.

It's easy to give a table Around wrapping inadvertently by dragging
the table handle (the little box off the northwest corner of the
table). It then behaves the same way as a floating picture. The way to
turn that off is to click the None button in the Table Properties
dialog.

Default Flowing Table Position in Document

Thank you. I over looked that item. My problem was that and a combination
of the paragraph settings. I had the last row in the second table and the
line below the second table cleared in the line and page breaks, but it did
not move until I cleared the line before the second table, second and third
tables, the line between the second and third tables, and the line after the
third table. I don't know what that cleared out since I would have normally
expect the when I uncheck the "keep with next" that the tables would have
separated between the second and third table, but it did not. Could that be
because I created the third table by splitting it from the second table?
