Hello Brian

I know this is a while after the first post but I am having a similar
problem and your suggestions didn't work for me. I have a table with
number of columns at each row. My table needs to be longer than 1 page
however it transplants to the second page except for the first row which
stays at the top of the first page with empty space for the rest of the
page. the option to split the table is checked and I clicked that symbol
there is only one of them under the table that cannot be removed.

Click the ΒΆ symbol on the toolbar. Go to the bottom of the table. Do
you have
a series of the symbols running down the page. If so start from the
below the table and delete them leaving the last in place.

Or do you have a section break or hard page break at the bottom of
table. If so delete this and see what happens.

Post back with the results.

I did this but now the table continues onto the next page as I
wanted but
everything from the next page gets shifted onto the one after -
even though
there is plenty of room for it.

Do you know if this can be solved or is it just the version of Word
I am
using won't allow it?

In the table properties dialogue box, select the row tab and
check the "Allow
row to break across pages" check box.

hope this helps,

I'm using Microsoft Word and when I am inputing the information
into the
table, it just goes onto the next page and leaves a massive
blank area on the
previous page. Does anyone know how to split the table so it an
just continue
onto the next page without leaving massive blank areas?

Thanks for your help
