Chapter 76. Formatting Text in Tables > Table Flow Between Text Frames

Table Flow Between Text Frames

One of the reasons tables are implemented within text frames is so you can flow a table from frame to frame—excellent for multipage tables. We discuss how to thread text between text frames in Chapter 40. When a table is contained within the text flow of a story (or even if it is the only element in the text frame), each row acts like a line of text, so the table always breaks between rows; you can’t break the table part way through a row.

Just as in working with paragraph text, you can use Keep Options to control where a row begins and whether it is kept with the next row. However, here, the Keep Options are in the Rows and Columns panel of the Cell Options dialog box. In the Keep Options section of the dialog box, choose whether the row can begin in any location, or in the next column, text frame, page, or even or odd page. You can also choose the Keep with Next Row option.
