MS Word - table issue

I have received a MS Word document which has a table, that spans over a few pages however, the last row on each page does not automatically span onto the next page.  So I as I continue writing in the row the text does not appear on the next page but just disappears under the row of the table of the previous page.

What am I missing here?  I'm guessing a tick box on word wrap or table wrapping is not happening but I cannot see anything in the table properties.

Maybe the row has been set to a fixed height. Table Properties > Row tab again. Specify height has two options, At Least and Exactly. If Exactly has been chosen the row will not expand as the text increases.

In Table Properties > Row tab, there is an option to allow row to break across pages. Check that.

I should also add, then when I hit Return/Enter within a cell, it does not increase the number of rows or lines in that space.  The only way I can write more text and lines is by increasing the height of the row by dragging the cell down.

Hi Rob

The allow row to break across pages is already checked.

Perhaps you should try disabling the 'Allow row to break across pages' option.

Problem solved, yes the row was set to fixed height = exactly.  Have now changed it to "at least" and that now makes the table span across to the next page.  Thanks!
