Headings On Your Printout

Please Note: This article is written for users of the following Microsoft Word versions: 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003. If you are using a later version (Word 2007 or later), this tip may not work for you.

Most tables have some sort of heading which indicates what is in each column of the table. This heading can be a row or two in size, and you typically apply some sort of special formatting to the heading row (or rows). When your table gets long enough, you may be wondering how you can get your special heading rows to appear at the top of the portion of the table that appears on each new page. You do this by following these steps:

  1. Select the rows that you are using as your headings.
  2. From the Table menu, select the Headings option (Word 97) or the Heading Rows Repeat option.

What you see on the screen at this point depends on the view you are using. If you are using Normal view, you will notice no difference in the screen. If you are using Print Layout view, however, the headings will appear any time your table is split across pages.
