    Nesting Tables

    I used the Draw Table option to create a table in Word 2000 - then inserted {fillin} fields where I want information to be inserted within the appropriate cell. The way I created the table was by "Nesting" tables within tables. I did this because 1. in case later they wanted to use this via the WEB and 2. the alignment factor was horrible - lining up three table exactly on top of one another. Problem... now that I am just about finished - I've run into the problem of not being able to see any part of the table and it's field codes (Shift F9) after the 1st page! It will not let me tweek any text, see anything in any view. PLEASE HELP!!! I'm on a deadline that has just about ran out - any fix will be appreciated. <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Better late than never!

    Switch to Print Layout View. If you are in Normal View, the table does not show.

    Hi Rajesh:
    The Draw Table method is not the same as using the Drawing Toolbar and you can see a table that was created using Draw Table in the normal view.
    Cheers,

    Thanks Phil. <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39> I missed that one!

    So what's the answer?

    Hi Rajesh:
    I'm not sure. It's possible that the original poster selected the entire cell. When you do that, Shift+F9 (& Ctrl+Shift+F9) doesn't work.
    Cheers,
