Disappearing Cell Contents and Row Markers

I selected a row and dragged it to a new location, but instead of moving the whole row, as expected, Word replaced the contents of existing cells in the destination row.

Although you thought you selected the entire row, you actually selected all the cells in the rows. To make sure you select the entire row, you need to have Word show you the end-of-row markers—which are visible only if you show paragraph marks (choose Tools, Options, click the View tab, and select the Paragraph Marks check box). If you want to click and drag a table row to a new location, select the entire row—including the end-of-row marker—and then click and drag, as you would with any other Word component.
