Repeating a table's headings at the top of each page If a table spans more than one page, it may be useful to repeat column headings at the top of each page of the table.

As a table grows to span more pages, the heading rows continue to appear at the top of any new pages exactly as they do in the designated header row. You cannot edit the repeated header rows. To format them or change their content, change the original designated header row content and the repeated headers will follow suit. Choose Table Heading Rows Repeat again to turn the feature off. As soon as you click back inside the table, the heading rows will disappear from second and subsequent pages.

Anything from a tabbed list to a series of paragraphs can be turned into a table by determining the number of columns and rows, applying an AutoFormat (if desired), and selecting the delimiter (a character or code that tells Word where to break the text to place it in individual cells).

Next, specify how the columns should be sized. These options are covered earlier in the chapter. Finally, choose the type of character that delimits, or separates, Chapter 10:Table | 291
