    Climbing underneath a table (2003)

    If I insert a table to a blank document I sometimes find it hard to add text under/ outside of the table. I try double-clicking (frantically) underneath it but that just ends up putting additional paragraph marks to the right of the table.
    How can I reliably get the cursor below a table? Thanks, Andy.

    After inserting the table, press Ctrl+End and start typing.

    In addition to what Hans says, you could also select the table, right click it to get the context menu, go for table properties and make sure text wrapping is set to None.

    Thanks. Tried this, but there is a paragraph mark to the right of the table's first row which I cannot delete...
    Actually, turning off the text wrapping for the table and then pressing Ctrl-End works. Ta. Andy.

    Hi Andrew,

    With the way Word is designed, there is always at least one paragraph that follows the last table in any document - even if the table is the only thing you've inserted. So, to start typing after the table, all you need to do is to select that paragraph - that's what you're doing via Ctrl-End.
    Cheers,
