Default Reflow a table of photos on multiple pages

I use Word 2007 for a newsletter for my turning club.



I include lots of photos. I have found the best way to do this is to make a table 3 cells wide by any number of cells down (long). I then insert a photo file into a cell, resize the photo and add a caption. Usually the final form on the page is 3 photos (cells) wide and 4 or 5 rows down the page. Usually the table will break and carry on on the next page as expected at row 4 or 5.

Lately the tables have not been reflowing to the next page as expected, but the whole table/cells will jump to the next page and fill the whole page including the upper margin and leave the previous page with blank space and some rows of photos buried at the top of the page.

Can anyone suggest how I can get the table to reflow normally, splitting and continuing on the next page.

Thanks,

Bob

Most likely the problem is due to someone having applied a 'keep together' and 'keep with next' paragraph format to the table. Selecting the table and clearing those settings may resolve the matter. Alternatively, someone may have applied the 'around' wrap format to the table. Clearing that setting may resolve the matter.

More generally, you may be interested in a macro that automates the insertion and captioning of large numbers of pictures. See: https://www.msofficeforums.com/word-...html#post47919
