Table header rows are displayed at the top on the continuation of a table that has overflowed the previous page(s). You do not have to copy the header rows to the top of each page. This means that changes can be make to the document which might cause pagination differences without the need to manually recopy the header.

In your example, you have several tables. Here is the document with the tables joined together,

the only way to do this is to split the table and insert the new line you want to use as a table header

Thank you.  That is exactly what I need assistance with.  Can you describe how to do that?
'Repeat Header Rows' can be applied to a number of contiguous rows starting from the first row. Those rows will be displayed at the top of the table whenever a new page is started within the table. It is only a display, so cannot be varied. The header rows as displayed on subsequent pages cannot be selected.

A { page } field in the header will always show the number of the first page. I mention this in case you were hoping to use fields to compute the date.

For your actual requirement you will need a table per day. If none of the tables spreads over a page boundary, the facility doesn't help you at all.

to split a table, place the cursor in a cell of the first line you want in the new table

you should see the Table Tools tabs, select the Layout tab and click on Split Table
