Default Embedding formula in word without table

I am working on two-three page document in Word 2003. As it is laid out now,
I have a table in which in the left column I add text which can be quite
long. In the right column I add a number. At then end of the document, all
the above listed numbers are added for a total score. The problem is that
some cells have a lot of text, and so the table breaks automatically at the
border between rows, leaving some pages with a few lines of text and some
pages with lots of text. It looks bad and it ends up wasting paper. In the
table option, I have check the box for "allow row to break across pages," but
the unsatisfactory formatting persists. Is there some way either to embed
number field directly into say a heading line, and then have them summarized
at the end of the document, or to have table rows split in mid-row when the
text gets to the end of the page. Otherwise, if my question is clear, can
you think of another alternative.
Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
Bob

Hi Bob,

I am working on two-three page document in Word 2003. As it is laid out now,
I have a table in which in the left column I add text which can be quite
long. In the right column I add a number. At then end of the document, all
the above listed numbers are added for a total score. The problem is that
some cells have a lot of text, and so the table breaks automatically at the
border between rows, leaving some pages with a few lines of text and some
pages with lots of text. It looks bad and it ends up wasting paper. In the
table option, I have check the box for "allow row to break across pages," but
the unsatisfactory formatting persists. Is there some way either to embed
number field directly into say a heading line, and then have them summarized
at the end of the document, or to have table rows split in mid-row when the
text gets to the end of the page.

By default, a table should break when the text gets to the end of the page. If
that's not happening, and you are sure the checkbox is activated, then select
the table and look under Format/Paragraph/Line and Page Breaks. Make sure "Keep
lines together" and "Keep with next" are *not* activated.
