Default Aligning Text in Word

Hello:

I need to align the text in table headings. A 'rough' example is below.

I have:


Table 2.1 Mammal species occurring in Biggs County, MO, compiled from Conent and Colby 2001. Species confirmed in Redmond 1996, Terry unpubl. data, and/orthis study are noted.

I need:
Table 2.1 Mammal species occurring in Biggs County, MO, compiled from Conent and Colby 2001.
Species confirmed in Redmond 1996, Terry unpubl. data, and/orthis study are noted.


Obviously I did this by hand, which would never fly. How do I get these to align correctly every time? I've been clicking the ruler and creating a tab, but that does not ALWAYS properly align the text.

THANKS--

These are called Table captions in Word jargon.
I know of no way to make a two-line caption that will set up the way you want in each instance. You might be able to put the caption, itself, inside a borderless table cell that forced wrapping where you wanted it.

Note, there are advantages to using the Insert Caption method (on the References Tab). Among other things, it lets you create a Table of Tables or Figures (like a table of contents).
