Default Can't sort table



As from one day, I cannot sort any table (no matter what table I produce). The
error message is:

Word cannot sort this table or selection because all of its row are table
headings

Does anyone know what's wrong?
[PS: I might suspect my change in the default setting of table formatting and
style (eg all texts in the table are default as centre-aligned)]

0-0, you can't sort the table because all the rows are headings. Do this:

1-Pull down the Table Menu and Select Table
2-On the Table Menu, select Heading Rows Repeat
3-Assuming row 1 of your table contains column headings, click in row 1 and
Table Heading Rows Repeat.

Now try sorting the table. It should work.

Yeah. It works again.
Thanks a lot for your help.

This problem really troubled me long.
I should have asked long time ago.

Thanks a lot.
