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

Using Word 2003, I am trying to get the table header to appear automatically
at the top of every page. However, even with this option selected - It will
not appear. I usually work in Print Layout View and I have tried printing a
page or two to see if it works, but it just doesn't.

I would rate myself as a pretty advanced user of Word.

If you can explain why it is not working, I would be super grateful.

Since you are a pretty advanced user of Word, I am assuming that you used the
Table Properties: Row and selected "Repeat as header row." If you did this,
then the only other thing I can think of is that you are not selecting the
first row as your header row. MS Word will only repeat the first or a first
number of rows for repeating across pages, you cannot select the 2nd or
subsequent rows for repeating. If you need this to happen, break your table
and insert a 1pt paragraph between the rows you do not want repeated and the
new ones that you do, then you can select the rows that you want to repeat
across pages.

Nope this didn't work. The header row I am trying to repeat is indeed the
first row. The header row contains regular text (no fields). I can open
other documents which have the table header repeated, but in my (new)
document the header will not repeat. I have checked the table properties and
can see no difference in this Word Doc and the Word Docs where the table
header repeats.

Any other suggestions, greatly appreciated.

Try checking your document options.
1) Select Options from the Tools menu
2) Select the "Save" tab
3) Ensure the checkbox "Disable features introduced after:" is unchecked
4) Select the "Compatibility" tab
5) Select the Recommended Options for Word 2003
6) Click OK, then resave your document, close it, and open it back up.
7) If that doesn't work, delete your table, then configure as shown above,
save, then close. Then recreate your table.
Cool If that doesn't work, then I'm not sure what else might work.

I have also encountered this problem in Word 2003. Whatever I did, the header
row would not work. I tried deselecting then reselecting the "repeat as
header row" option a few times, and it suddenly started working again.

I don't know why exactly.

Cheers,
Caroline.

Having had this problem a number of times, I found the most amazing
solution.

Copy the table.
Paste it into WORD PERFECT (No, I'm not kidding)
Copy what you pasted into Word Perfect
Paste it back into Word
Works every time.

You may have to do some odd bits of formatting to the table or fonts or
font sizes, but the header row problem disappears!

Cute, but not necessary. In Word 2003 and earlier, select row that contains
the header, then choose Table - Heading Rows Repeat from the menu.

In Word 2007, select the row, and click Repeat Header Rows in the Data
section of the Table Tools - Layout ribbon tab.

This actually works. Only I copied back and forth from wordpad after trying
every other suggestion on other posts in this forum.

I could turn this problem "on and off" by switching "Text Wrapping" (Table -> Table Properties -> Table tab) from "None" to "Around" and back.

Hi. Landed on this page as I was having the same problem today. And in my case, the solution was simple all along: start from the top! As you try and apply each solution you come across on top of each other, the end result is nothing works. So here's what worked for me.
    Open a new instance of Word.
    Copy/paste your table.
    Select ONLY the header rows you want repeated.
    Click Table->Heading Rows Repeat.

You should see the heading(s) in succeeding pages right away!

Hope this works for you...

I tried all of these things but none worked. I followed the directions for MS Word 2007 on the Microsoft site. It worked! Here is the link:

Good luck!
