Default Gaps in multi-page Word 2007 Tables

I am creating a document and have decided to use a table so the formatting is standardized. My problem is that I am seeing large blank areas where one table cell ends and the next begins, sometimes an entire page. The prior cell has lines that do not fit into the prior page. Now I have a half a blank page before the next cell begins, at the top of the following page. How do I correct this?

Default Big gaps in a table

Shawn, have you sized the table (columns and rows) so that they fit on one page?

Also, may I ask what kind of document you are creating that you feel is best served with a table? If your entire document is going to be a table you many want to switch to MS Excel because I think it's much easier to use than Word tables but can produce the same effect dependent on your document.
