Im working with Word 2007, and I have a table in my document. The table spans a couple of pages. On page 2, there is only the end of the prior row - which fills about 1/8 of the screen. On page 3, there is a small row that appears at the top of the page (also taking up about 1/8 of the screen).

There is no page break on the page that I know of. In fact, if I navigate between the two rows there appears to be no area between the rows at all.

Any thoughts?

when you display the hidden characters, you can't see anything ? – JMax Jun 23 '11 at 13:39
Have you tried re sizing the margins? – viking Jun 23 '11 at 13:41
There are no hidden characters in the area... – the6e Jun 23 '11 at 14:37
I don't see any issues with the margins either... – the6e Jun 23 '11 at 14:38
Do you want it to span multiple pages? Does the table span all 3 pages and the third is the quirky one or does it span pages 2 and 3 and you would like it just to be on page 2? – Ben Jones Jul 6 '11 at 18:22

A work-around would be to save your table as a picture, then insert pieces of the picture (or play with scaling) to fit the space available in your document.
