It was the right edged of the column. I forgot the it could also refer
to the bottom.

Interesting. We now have three replies based on *totally* different
interpretations of what the problem is. Sure seems like we need a
better description of the symptoms. Maybe the third time will be
the charm?

Does "end of the column" mean the right edge of the column?
Does "end of the column" mean the bottom of a cell in a row
that is interior to the table?
Does "end of the column" mean the bottom of a cell that is in
the last row of the table?
Does "end of the column" mean the bottom of a cell that is at
a page break in a multi-page table?

Each of these is very different.
