    I am new to Word Tables and need some guidance. Can someone give me a
    pointer?

    I'm not at the computer that has Office 2010 right now, but I'm pretty sure
    this hasn't changed since Word 2007:

    Put the cursor in the row that will become the first row of the second
    table. Click the Table Tools > Layout tab of the ribbon. In the Merge group,
    click the Split Table button.

    Select the first row below the split (left click in the left hand margin)
    Select the Layout tab
    Click on Split Table in the Merge group

    Easy when you know it is there under ribbon..but if you don't you are lost. Says it all for word 2010.

    I looked this up on Office "help" and it took me to this random discussion.

    You're a bit late to the party. The original question was asked two years ago...
