Default Why can't I get Word 2007 header row to repeat?

Hi,

I've set, under Table Properties, the header row to repeat, under the Row
tab. But is isn't! Is this a bug w/ 2007? It worked fine under 2003...

Make sure that the "Text wrapping" attribute of the table is not set to
"Around"

Thanks, Doug, but no, it was set to "None", not "Around."

Make sure that only the top row(s) of the table are marked as heading rows.

OK, that worked! What I found was the WHOLE TABLE was set to repeat! So I
had toi first turn it off for the whole table, then turn it on for the header
row only! I forgot about that weird possibility... (like why did the whole
table default to repeating every row as the header in the first place???)

Thanks!

Btw, for some reason I am no longer receiving email notification of you guys'
replies -- even though I check the box below that says "notify me of
replies." (??)

Email notification has been broken for months. We keep asking MS to at least
post a notice saying it doesn't work, but alas...

When you tab out of a table row to create a new one, the new one replicates
all the settings of the existing one. If you create a heading row and mark
it as such, then tab to create a new row... One reason I always start a
table with two rows, one for the heading and one for the text.
