Archived from groups: microsoft>public>word>tables (more info?)

I have a table in a MS Word 2002 SP 3 document which I would like to have as
a continuous table.



For some reason Word keeps breaking my table and starting a new one after
row 28, on page 2 which is largely blank. The next table that Word puts the
rest of it in has 40+ rows, and starts on page 3.



What could be causing Word to force a new table?



I've checked Show/Hide for page breaks etc but nothing is apparent.

Is "Keep with next" or "Page break before" (Format | Paragraph, Line and
Page Breaks tab) applied to some rows of the table? If so, clear this
formatting.

For more, see:

How do I control where the page breaks will fall in a table which
extends over several pages?

Thanks Stefan - it's easy when you know how.
