Rick Quattro's TableCleaner plugin will let you convert body rows to heading or footing rows, among other things, and is a must-have (IMNSHO) if you are pulling Word tables into Frame. Or even if you're just meddling with tables in general. It costs $60, and can be found here: http://www.frameexpert.com/plugins/tablecleaner/index.htm Worth every penny. ---- Lin Sims
