    Multiple tables in a document?

    I'm trying to create a document consisting of several tables, one below the other with space but no text between them.

    Every time I create a second or third table below the first one it attaches itself to the table above it and I'm unable to separate them into two tables. Can someone please advise me how to do this, if not in Word in some other program?

    Thanks and regards
    Hugh

    Did you put a couple or returns in before the new table?
    Try selecting the row below where you want the break, then in table format select split table.

    cheers, Paul

    Many thanks, Paul, for your quick and helpful reply. It worked fine, but now there's much too much space between the two tables. Deleting the one and only return code joins them back together again. Is there a way to adjust the space betwen them?

    Cheers

    Select the paragraph mark between the tables and change the following settings:
    Space before and Space after should be 0 (paragraph formatting)
    You can change the font size to 2 or 3 pts.

    If you need this formatting more than once, create it as a paragraph style and apply the style.
