Table split across two pages with large blank at top of page??

Discussion in 'Word Tables' started by littlelucinda, Jan 25, 2012.

  1. I have a word 2010 document that began as a small table but since
    added more data to it, it has now run over across two pages but left
    massive blank at the top of the second page. The table is marked a
    Allow Row To Break Across Pages, and I haven't put a break in o
    anything...but I can't click in this white space or anything. Acros
    the forums I've looked at there seem to be plenty of options but non
    for 2010. I'm sure there is an easy answer but I've reached my limit!!
    Please be nice, I got abused the last forum I went on for asking thi
    question *looks afraid

    First of all, make sure "Vertical alignment" in the Page Setup dialog box is
    set to "Top." To open the dialog box, you can double-click the vertical
    ruler. You'll find the alignment options on the Layout tab of the dialog.

    If the above doesn't help, look at the paragraph formatting for the row that
    begins on the second page. Select the table row. On the Home tab, click the
    dialog launcher button (the little arrow on the bottom right) of the
    Paragraph group. On the Line and Page Breaks tab, make sure that "Page break
    before" and "Keep with next" are both cleared. Click OK.
