Make Headers Stay Across Pages on Tables in Word

A quick Microsoft Word tip: if you’re working with a table you’ve created in Word, and your table spans multiple pages, it can be annoying to flip back and forth to remember what each column represents. Ideally, you’d like to be able to keep the column headers on the table in Word across each page, much like splitting a worksheet in Excel.

Here’s how that works in Office 2003:

  1. Highlight the first row of your table, or whichever row contains your headers.
  2. Right-click on one of the highlighted cells.
  3. Select “Table Properties.”
  4. Select the “Row” tab.
  5. Check “Repeat as header row at the top of each page.”
  6. Click OK.

Now, each page your table spans should have your headers conveniently located at the top of the page.
