Tables move onto the next page

I have attached a word document that has a table in it.  In the last column, the user wrote so much information that it did some weird things.  It won't wrap the text to the next page, but rather moves all the text to the next page leaving the first page empty in the table.

Is there a way to stop this and make the text appear on the first page and then overflow to the second page?

See if this is better. I went to Table Properties - Row tab and unchecked Repeat as Header Row at the top of each page

Although I do not know what version of Word you are using the Word 2007 way to try:

1. Select the cell.
2. Right click on the cell
3. Click table properties
4. choose the Row tab at the top
5. Check Allow Row to break across pages.

See if that works.
