Locking table position

Discussion in 'Word Tables' started by Keith Woollacott, Jan 13, 2010.

  1. Is it possible to lock or anchor a table to a specific position on a page?
    Users should still be able to edit text in cells.

    Keith,
    You could put the table in a frame. Format the frame to not move with the
    text and anchor it to the first paragraph of the page.

    If you set text wrapping for the Table to "Around" (in Table Properties),
    you can then uncheck "move with text" and choose where to put the table,
    using the Positioning sub-dialog of Table Properties.

  4. Luc,
    Excuse my ignorance, but what's a frame? I have looked in most places and
    searched the Word help files but can't find any reference to frames.

  5. Tony - did as you suggested, but it doesn't fix the problem. Yes, the table
    doesn't move if the user types outside the table, but it allows them to
    accidently (or otherwise) drag the table around the page.

  6. For Frame, read Text Box. Set the position of the text box relative to the
    page with the text set to wrap around it.
