Default Within a table format, a single cell can't automatically flow to the next page?

Hi,

Thank anyone in advance who can help!!

It's found out that the content of a single cell or content control box can't automatically flow to the next page within a table format in Word document.
I am wondering whether there is a way to address this issue, or the table format can't be used?



Really appreciate any help or suggestions!!

Sincerely,
Laurie

Table cell content certainly can flow across page breaks. Your problem may be that you've:
• set the row properties to disallow the 'break across pages' property;
• set the row properties with a minimum height that is too large for it to fit on the same page as the previous row; and/or
• formatted the paragraphs in the cell with the 'keep together' and/or 'keep with next' properties.

To add to what Paul has said, a table row with a fixed height will never be "split" between pages. Instead, the row in its entirety to the next page (if it doesn't fit on the current page).
