Word 2016 – How to keep whole table together on one page

The following steps show how to format a table in a  Word document so that the table does not split across multiple-pages (when it can fit in one page).

For example, the table at the bottom of page 1 has split into page 2.

  1. Select all rows in the table – but clicking inside the table then the cross-arrow at the top left of the table
  2. In the ‘Home’ menu, click on the ‘Paragraph’ settings icon
  3. Open the ‘Line and Page Breaks’ tab
  4. Tick ‘Keep with next’
  5. Click ‘OK’ to close the window
  6. The table should now be on its own page

 

Help! The table is still split between two pages!

If the table is still split between two pages – try disabling the table row setting ‘Allow row to break across pages’.

  1. Select all rows in the table – but clicking inside the table then the cross-arrow at the top left of the table
  2. Right-click in the table and choose ‘Table settings’
  3. Un-tick ‘Allow row to break across pages’
  4. Click ‘OK’ to save the changes.
