Thanks to Microsoft Office (especially Word 2007) for making simple things difficult. I thought keeping a table on one page should be simple, but I was wrong. Thanks to this tutorial, I knew what I have to do. However, the tutorial is for Word 2003 and before. The technical details of the tutorial still applies to Word 2007, but the procedure has changed. So, below are the steps on how to format the table so that it is on one page (or view this tutorial video) .
- Click inside any table cell and then right click and select “Table Properties” from the popup menu.
- In the “Table Properties” dialog box and under the “Row” tab, uncheck the “Allow row to break across pages” box.
- Now, select all the rows except the last one. Navigate to the “Home” Tab of the Word 2007 and click on the drop down button in the “Styles” Panel and select “Apply Styles” Option.
- In the “Apply Styles” dialog box, click on “Modify” Button.
- Finally, in the “Modify Style” dialog box, click on “Format” button and select “Paragraph” and then click on “Lines and Page Break” tab.
- Lastly, check-on the “Keep With Next” and “Keep Lines Together” checkboxes.
