You're making a table in Word. It's pretty long, over a page. But your row of column headings is only at the top of the first page. So, you add a row above the top row on each page, and the copy the headings into that row...and then you have to take out a row of data, or add one, so the paging changes, and then you have to do it all over again....what a pain!!
Did you know that you can avoid all this with one checkmark? Here's how:
1. Select the row you'd like to use as column headings on each page.
2. From the "Table" menu, choose "Table Properties"
3. Click the "Row" tab, if it isn't already selected.
4. Check "Repeat as header row at the top of each page"
5. Cilck "OK"
That's it! It's that easy! Now each page of your table will start with the same headers, with no more fuss.
