The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, versions 4.0, 5.0, 5.1


Word cannot break table cells across pages. If you have a table cell (that contains numerous paragraphs of text) that is taller than the distance between your top and bottom margins, the text will extend beyond the bottom margin and then truncate at the edge of the printable portion of the page. The information will not wrap to the next page.

To correct this situation, do the following:

  1. Make sure you are in Normal View (in the View menu, select Normal). (In Word 4, in the Document menu, make sure Page View is not checked.) Then, insert a blank row beneath the row containing the truncated text.
  2. Select at least the portion of text that is being truncated.
  3. From the Edit menu, choose Cut.
  4. Position the insertion point in the next cell down.
  5. From the Edit menu, choose Paste.

Word will now break the page above the inserted row.
