This short video provides solutions to the most common irritants while editing Microsoft Word Tables. It covers issues like table going outside the page, optimizing width of columns based upon the content, making all rows to be of the same height, preventing rows from breaking across pages, automatically making first row(s) as headers.
Read this article first: Frustration = Feature Guarantee! (Table Row breaking across pages). Here we saw how to ask Word to manage repeating the header automatically across pages.
What I learnt today is that the Repeat Header Rows works across columns as well. This is very useful when we have a narrow table shown in multiple columns on the same page.
