    Prevent Table splitting over 2 pgs (Word XP)

    How can i prevent the table from splitting over two pages. I know that i can insert a page break before it, but is there a way to prevent it from splitting. Is there something like a keep together property for tables. I also know of the "Allow rows to break across pages" option, but this is UN-checked, so it should not do this. Any answers?

    Select all rows of the table except for the last one.
    Select Format | Paragraph...
    Activate the Line and Page Breaks tab.
    Tick the 'Keep with next' check box.
    Click OK.

    Hi Rudi,

    Another way is to put the table into a text box. This can have other advantages too, like allowing text to wrap around a narrow table.
