    Connecting tables in Word (Word 2002)

    To bring two separate tables together in old versions of Word we could just delete the paragraph return that separated them. When doing the same procedure in Word 2002 it still assumes that the tables are separate - even though they look to be joined together (which causes problems when trying to apply the Heading Rows Repeat option for the table headings to appear on every page). By the way, the two tables were completely separate tables created in different documents and brought together. The only way I could see of getting round this was to cut the second table and paste it to the end of the first table but if you know of an easier way, please let me know!

    Re: Connecting tables in Word (Word 2002)

    The two tables are formatted with a different Table AutoFormat. This is a new feature in Word 2002.

    The first table is formatted with Table Grid, the second with Table Normal. If you apply the same Table AutoFormat to both tables, they will be joined into one table.
