Subject:Re: Page breaks in tables problem (Word) From:Andres Heuberger <andresh -at- FXTRANS -dot- COM> Date:Fri, 12 Feb 1999 10:02:04 -0500
This is one of the most frustrating things about MS Word. The only way
around it -- to to best of my knowledge -- is to:
* select the entire row that is now breaking across pages
* go to Format | Paragraph
* select both "Keep lines together" _and_ "Keep with next"
This will force the page break above the row you just formatted.
You don't want to include these settings in a paragraph style though. If
every cell in every row is formatted this way, you'll go back to page
breaks in the middle of cells. In other words, this is a manual job.
