Creating Table Header Rows in Word
Header rows are rows that contain information that help identify the content of a particular column. If the table spans several pages of a print layout, the header row will usually repeat itself at the beginning of each new page.
When you create a table in Microsoft Word, by default Microsoft Word does not create a header row. However, if you create header rows in your Microsoft Word source documents, you can quickly and easily specify the appearance that you want for table header rows in your generated output.
Note: You cannot create table footer rows in Microsoft Word source documents. Microsoft Word does not support the creation of table footer rows.
The following procedure provides an example of how to create table header rows in Microsoft Word source documents using Microsoft Word 2003. Steps for creating table header rows in Microsoft Word may be different in other versions of Microsoft Word.
