#310 Automatically Repeat Table Headers in Word

Tables are a great option for managing the alignment of rows and columns of information. If you’ve used them much you may have encountered a time when your table ran across two different pages. What most people do when they run into this situation is to duplicate the header row on that 2nd page so people can still see the headings, which is nice. However, the challenge comes when the table grows or shrinks by a couple rows and now that duplicated header is out of place.

Next time you run into that situation, the smarter way to handle it is to let word automatically repeat the header row at the top of each new page. This way, no matter how many rows, or even pages, you add to your table the headers will always be sitting right at the top where they belong.

How it Works:

  1. Select top row of your table.
  2. Right-click and choose Table Properties…
  3. On the Row tab check the Repeat as header row at the top of each page box
