How do I make a table heading row repeat on each page of my word processing document that the table appears on?


A repeating header row is the default in OpenOffice.org when creating a new table. If you have an existing table, or if you are using a different text document template, follow the following instructions:

  1. Place your cursor somewhere in the table.
  2. Hold your right mouse button down to get the context menu, then select Table.
  3. In the dialog that appears, click on the Text Flow tab.
  4. In the Text Flow page, select Repeat heading (so that a check appears).
  5. Click OK.
