Default Grouping table rows to prevent individual rows from breaking across pages

Hi, and thanks in advance for your help....



I have multiple choice exam questions (thousands of them) in an excel spreadsheet that I want to turn into a study word document. The spreadsheet is set up as only one column with a row for the question, one for each possible answer and the last one for the correct answer. There is a blank row between questions and then it repeats. I can paste this info into a table in word. The problem is I don't know how to prevent the table from breaking across a page in the middle of a question. Is there some way I could merge the rows for each question into one row? It would basically be merging 7 rows repetitively.

Word has an option you can check/uncheck to determine whether a particular row can break across pages. See under Table Tools>Layout>Properties>Row. As for adjoining rows, you can keep a group together by formatting all of the paragraphs* with the 'keep with next' attribute.

* This will keep each group together with the blank row that follows it. If you don't want that, don't apply the attribute to the last paragraph in each cell on the last row of the group.
