    Table on one page (Word 2000)

    Hi gang,
    I want to keep an entire table on the same page. I think I saw this somewhere but just can't remember how to do it.
    Thanks.

    Re: Table on one page (Word 2000)

    Select the whole table and clear the checkbox at Table > Properties > Row > "Allow Row to break across pages"
    Then select all rows except the last one and set the checkbox Format > Paragraph > Line and Page Breaks > Keep with Next

    Re: Table on one page (Word 2000)

    Stuart,
    Is this supposed to keep a table from "growing" onto the next page? If not, what's
    the purpose? I tried these instructions and they don't keep a table "on the same page"
    if you tab your way to new rows.

    Please explain. Thanks.

    Kevin,

    I use this for relatively short tables that I want to keep on a single page whilst I edit other parts of the same document.

    As you add text before the table it will gradually move towards the bottom of the page and then the entire table will spill over to the next page when it no longer fits on the earlier page. In other words it prevents the table from being split with part of it on one page and the rest on the next.

    If I add rows to the table then I make a judgement call as to whether (and where) to allow the table to break, rather than allowing word to break it where it wants.

    Stuart,

    Just worth noting one potential problem with this solution. In general I think its better to uncheck the Allow to break across pages parameter. However if your table row becomes longer than a page you will have to check the box otherwise Word has a wobbler and will

    Ok, now I understand. Thanks for the very lucid explanation.
