Default tables breaking accross pages

Hello,
Not sure if this belongs in the “table” forum or “mail merge” forum as it pertains to both. Pardon my “newness”. I maintain a small database in Excel for a social club. I occasionally publish a roster of names, addresses etc., using the directory merge feature. Although the merge works fine, tables break inappropriately across pages. No amount of “widow and orphan” or “keep lines together” control seems to have affect. Now it’s easy enough to force a page break here and there, but it puzzles me that this should be fixable. Thanks, if you can help.

Hi!

Unselect the option "Allow row to break across pages" in the table properties.

Bye!

Thanks, but that wasn't it. table>layout>properties>row "Allow row to break across pages" unchecked. No Joy.
