Word: Header row won’t repeat revisitedOctober 8, 2010
I was trying to get the header row to repeat on a large and long table in a client’s Word document. But no matter what I did, it just wouldn’t repeat on the next and subsequent pages. I looked for a selected paragraph mark above it, but there was nothing there.
Then I selected a later row in the table to change its properties and noticed that the Header row repeat check box was checked, but dimmed/grayed out. Hmmm… I checked more rows — they all had the Header row repeat check box selected but dimmed out.
So on a whim I selected the entire table, went to Table Properties > Row tab and found that the Header row repeat check box was still selected but now it was clickable. Aha! I cleared that check box and clicked OK.
Then I selected just the header row and reapplied the Header row repeat to it. Now it worked!
Someone, somewhere, sometime had applied Header row repeat to the entire table and that’s why the real header row would not repeat on the subsequent pages. An easy fix — once I figured it out.
