I selected the entire first row in my table and clicked the Repeat Header Rows button.  And yet, the top row does not repeat.
Is there some trick/trap to this feature?

Could you send a dummy?

It repeats at the beginning of the next pages

there should be no Text Wrapping to work

Table Properties / Text wrapping : none
Are you using an appropriate view - Print Layout or Full Screen Reading?
Can you post the document or a non-confidential sample?  We can then, at least, see if it is confined to your system.

here is a dummy copy of the file.

those are different tables not just one table over different pages

please follow these steps to achieve the desired results:

create a single table by removing all the page breaks and new Paragraph characters between each section and you will note that the top row will repeat.

select the row that you want to appear on a new page and display the Paragraph panel

select the Line & Page Breaks tab

check the Page break before box
