Default Want table to be ONE PAGE ONLY

I have designed a document that contains one table with about 12 rows. Some of the rows are "read only" and some of them are "editable." I had no problem making the document read only, and then highlighting the rows I need to have edited, then starting Protection.



The problem is that the LAST row in the table is an editable row - and, of course, if someone hits "TAB" in that row, another row is added to the table - which then goes to the next page.

Does ANYONE know how I can fix it so that hitting TAB in the last row of a table will NOT produce another row - so the table keeps its size and stays on one page? Or anything that will keep the table the exact size I have designed so it does NOT spill over to a second page?

If the row is unprotected, you can't stop the normal behaviour of adding a new row if the user tabs out of the last cell. That's just the way Word works. You could, however, insert another row after your current last one and make it both invisible and protected.

I see you posted another thread about the same issue. Kindly don't multi-post.

Thread closed.
