    Rows won't break across pages (Word 2003)

    I've attached a table whose rows will not break across pages even though the entire table is set to allow that. Can anyone tell me what's going on? I've never seen this before.

    I thought maybe the paragraphs were set for Keep With Next or Keep Lines Together, but there's none of that either.

    I can't explain it without super-secret, deep under-the-covers knowledge, but... if you select the table, convert to text (separating with paragraphs), then convert back to table (2 columns), it's cured.

    Thanks, Jefferson. It works great. It also solves the header problem I mentioned in my second post. Good work, as usual.

    Jefferson,

    The "super-secret, deep under-the-covers knowledge" was that every row in the table had the attribute "Heading Rows Repeat". Poor old word can hardly be expected to put a page break into a heading row that it needs to repeat on every page!
