Hi Z,

I would say this is more of a limitation than a bug. While the text repeats 
in each header row, the marker and its hyperlink behavior only occur in the 
header rows on the first page (or column) of the table. The only workaround 
would be to put a text frame with a hypertext link on top of each repeated 
header row on the subsequent pages. This would only be practical with 
FrameScript or an API client. If you really need this functionality and are 
open for a FrameScript solution, send me a small sample offlist and I will 
give you a quote. Thanks.
