Default repeat headers

How do I repeat headers for 3 seperate tables spanning multiple pages? When I
have it repeat, it only repeats for the last table, not the first 2. Is it
possible and how?

Thanks....Neil

Default repeat headers

I'm not sure I understand what you're wanting or what you're getting. Table
heading rows repeat only for the tables they're in. That is, Row 1 of Table
1, if set as a heading row, will repeat for the length of Table 1. Then you
break to Table 2, and its heading row repeats for its length, and so on. If
you want overall headings to repeat for all the tables, try putting the text
in the document header (the tables will need to be in a separate section).

Default repeat headers

Hi Suzanne, what I am looking to do is have 3 separate tables in a word doc
that may or may not roll to a new page (each table may be more than 1 page
long). Each table is different and has different column headings that I want
to repeat on the new page if it extends that far. I set each table properties
to repeat header row at top of next page but this only works for the last
table. I have read Microsoft help and it states it doesn't work if you have
page breaks in the table (or multiple tables). I am looking for a way around
this....any thoughts?

Default repeat headers

I'm not sure what you're doing wrong, but here is how to do it right:

1. In Print Layout view, click on the table handle of the first table to
select the entire table. Go to the Row tab of Table Properties and clear the
check box for "Repeat as heading row." This will ensure that none of the
non-heading rows had this property set inadvertently.

2. Now select just the first row (or however many of the beginning rows you
want repeated) and do Table | Heading Rows Repeat. You can have as many
heading rows as you want, but they must be contiguous and include the first
row in the table.

3. Repeat this process for each of the other two tables.

4. You can have manual page breaks in a table without splitting it if,
instead of pressing Ctrl+Enter to insert the page break, you format the row
you want on a new page as "Page break before" (Line and Page Breaks tab of
Format | Paragraph). Often this can be avoided by using other formatting,
however; see http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/TblsFldsFm...ksInTables.htm

Hi Suzanne, I have tried using the page break before control and that hasn't
resolved the issue either. I have top row of each table to repeat, yet only
the last table of the 3 will repeat the row heading, the other 2 tables do
not. Perhaps I can send you what I have so you can see? Anyway....I apprciate
your help...any other ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks....Neil
