Consecutive Tables Must Have Intervening Paragraph Mark PSS ID Number: Q48114 Article last modified on 07-14-1994

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows versions 1.0, 1.1, 1.1a, 2.0, 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c


If you place two tables consecutively in a Microsoft Word for Windows document, you must include an intervening paragraph; as a minimum, a paragraph mark must exist between the two tables. If you delete the paragraph mark between the two tables, the tables combine to make one large table. A forced page break (CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER) cannot prevent this combination; you must use a paragraph mark.

Note: If you delete the paragraph mark following a page break, the page break is also deleted if no other text exists between two tables.

More Information:

The necessary extra paragraph mark creates an additional linefeed. To prevent this problem, use the following steps:

  1. Position the cursor at the beginning of the row that is positioned on the next page.
  2. From the Format menu, choose Paragraph.
  3. Select the Page Break Before check box.
  4. Choose the OK button.

This procedure creates a break between rows without the paragraph mark between them.
