    Table misbehaving in Word 2007

    I cannot stop a table - which appears to be all together in the "normal" view - from breaking and inserting text between some of the rows. Can anybody suggest why it's doing this, and how I could make it stop?

    Details:

    I can make Word 2003 do everything I want to, and have scores of macros etc. that I use constantly. I've recently been forced to upgrade to 2007, and it's driving me up the wall!

    The most recent thing is that I have a document with a table in it. The first two rows should repeat as header rows. I found out how to select them, and to find the table properties box that allowed me to check the "Repeat as header row at the top of the page" - except it doesn't work.

    Worse, I now find that the top three rows of the table appear at the top of the document, followed by the title and some other text, and then by the rest of the table.

    (What I really want to do is make the top two rows into header rows; make them keep with next, so the first non-header row is forced to appear on the same page - rather than having a page break after the header rows - and then make the rest of the rows in the table not allow page breaks in the row... All things I could do extremely easily in Word 2003 - I even had a macro to do most of them...)

    Peter,

    Select the table and select the two settings shown in the graphic below. They fixed it on my machine.:Cheers:
