I have a table that is longer than one page. I have found the option to make the header of the table to be added to the second portion of the table after the page break. Is there a way to do the same thing with a footer on the table? I want to add a footer so that if my table was 1000 entries long (12 pages), that the first and last row of each page would be consistent; a header and footer for the table. If I edit the rest of the document (above the table) the table will shift up/down and I want to header and footer of the table to remain at the page breaks. Any ideas?

There's no option in Word to do it. The only way I know of is to put the table into its own section and use the page footers to mimic what you want. See the explanation here for a rough explanation.
