Tables should automatically split across pages as necessary. But note that they will only split on row boundaries; they will *never* break in the middle of a row. And also note that if you create any cells that straddle multiple rows, that creates an unbreakable block of rows. There are also several other things that will affect where (and sometime *whether*) a table will break across pages. If the "orphan row" setting in the Table Designer is too large, the table may break in an unexpected place because of the minimum number of rows you have set. If any rows have their Row Format properties set to keep with next or keep with previous, that can affect where a table splits. And if you set "Start Row" to top of page or top of column, you will force a page break above the selected row; but this is generally not a good idea to do this rather than letting the table break adjust automatically as you add and delete text before it. > I have a table followed immediately by a heading.

Place the insertion point at the beginning of the heading and press Enter; then retag the paragraph to an appropriate body text format. One thing to realize about tables in FrameMaker is that they are packaged as self-contained objects that are anchored to a single symbol in your main text flow. If you want to insert text (or a new paragraph) immediately above the table, you have to place the insertion point immediately to the left of the table's anchor symbol. If you want to insert a new paragraph immediately below a table, you need to place the insertion point immediately to the right of the anchro symbol or lese in the very beginning of the existing following paragraph. This is completely unlike MS Word where the paragraphs in a table are in the main text flow but simply happen to be arranged in a cell-like array. -Fred Ridder
