Microsoft Word 2003 table starts on new page

I'm working on a document where the table is starting on the next page - and I cannot figure out why.  I've set the first row as the header that repeats on all pages, and set all other rows to break across pages.  I've tried copy/paste, new document, changing the section break, etc. to no avail.  Making the situation even more frustrating is that I have an identical document (format/structure) that is properly showing the table starting immediately after the Heading 1 line and paragraph.  Help!

Go to Table Menu in Word, then Table properties, Row Tab, tick the check box that says to allow the table to break across pages.

Do you have Keep With Next set for the rows? Check the Format Paragraph dialog, and if it is on, turn it off.

By any chance is either one of these documents saved as an HTML document?
