    Word Tables (97 - 2000) (MS Office 2000 (SR1))

    Many users here work with rather large Word tables. In '97, they manipulated them by using Format Paragraph Keep with Next/ keep lines together/ page break before. When the same document is edited in 2000, the additions appear on the screen, they save correctly, but they will not print! We have tried multiple printers. If the doc is opened in '97 again, it will print fine.

    The only 'fix' we've been able to come up with is to remove all Paragraph formatting from Table and use the Table Properties, Row, Allow Rows to break... This options is not well received by our users, because they would like a little more control over where the Rows Break Across Page.

    What happens if you set your Word 2000 systems to only allow features compatible with Word 97? I don't know that this will help, but you probably want to do it on documents with tables in anyway so long as you are working in a dual-system shop.

    Re: Word Tables (97 - 2000) (MS Office 2000 (SR1))

    Thanks Chas, Upon further investigation, we found a couple things:
    1. Affected rows had PP formatting; Page break before applied to only one PP in row (this table has multiple PP in each row).
    2. The Page Break Before formatting was being carried over to row via copy/paste function.
    3. In tables, the copy/paste function does not carry over the Paragraph Formatting Indicator (little square) so you are not immediately aware that special formatting has been added to this paragraph.

    The problem can be fixed by using copy/paste special or manually removing PP formatting from copied PP's.

    Thanks so much, B--
