    Tables (Word 2000)

    Greetings,

    When I create a table using "insert table" it starts to degenerate once it fills the page. It bounces up to the top edge, runs off the bottom edge etc. I have set the table properties for the width of the table but I can't seem to control the top and bottom. Before 2000 it simply continued onto the next page and there was no problem with top or bottom margin. Is there a setting that needs changing? My Insert Table window popup is attached.

    Can you post a document with an example of a problem table.
    Things I would look for are ParagraphFormat options such as Keep With Next

    If you have set Wrap (in the Table tab of Table | Table Properties...) to Around Text, clicked Position..., and set Vertical Position to Centered, you can get this behavior.

    HansV,

    Thanks so much - problem solved. I didn't have setting "Around Text" selected but I did have "Automatically resize to fit contents" selected. I deselected that and it works perfectly!

    Stuart R - Thanks so much for responding to my query. As you may notice, the problem is fixed. I had the "Automatically resize to fit contents" selected When I changed that, it works great.
