    Table Header Continuation (2003 SP2)

    I have a table that continues over several pages. I've specified the rows to be repeated at the top of each page (so far, so good). I'd like to have the repeated headers say some thing like "Table 1 Yadda Yadda (cont.)". Is there a way to get that "(cont..)" included, but not have it show up at the very top of the table on the first page? The only way I know of doing this is manually break the table at the first page break and create a new repeating header (with "(cont.)") for the remainder of the table that's on the 2nd and subsequent pages, but this seems like a step backwards and would be a nuisance if the table moves around in the document relative to page breaks.

    Thanks,

    A simplistic solution is to put "Table 1 Yadda Yadda (cont.)" in the table header row, and to put a borderless white-filled rectangle over the word "(cont.)" on the first page that contains the table. If you set the rectangle to move with the text (this is the default setting), it'll still cover "(cont.)" even if the table moves around in the document.

    Thanks, Hans. Sneaky, not terribly elegant, but it'll do the trick. And I guess if I want to keep the table heading centered (the title in the same place on every page, with the "(cont.)" off to the side), I could either put the "(cont.)" on a second line in the same cell or I could put a "(cont.)" in front of the title as well as after it and have the one in front colored white...
