Hello,

you may want to do some reading up on how to use tables. The table has everything in a single row, using paragraph returns to create spaces. There are hundreds of trailing paragraph marks in the first and second column.

In a table, one would normally use a new row to separate content. This will get rid of the need to insert paragraph marks to create white space.

Here is the document with these paragraph marks deleted.

cheers, teylyn

thanks a lot teylyn...

one other favor.....is it possible to get that last signature line to be on the same page with the previous signature line so they can all sign on the same sheet instead of having to waste paper just for that last line????

thanks for all your help and i think i really need to learn up on tables....

Just remove a few empty rows in the table, so it shrinks. Turn on paragraph marks on the Home ribbon, then you can see which paragraph marks can be deleted.

cheers,
