Insert a Line Above Your Table in MS Word

Dennis Faas's picture

You create a table in your document at the top of the page and it looks great! But now you or your superior decide that there should be text before the table.

Not as easy as you thought it was going to be, is it?

I know you tried clicking above the table, but it doesn't work, does it?

Before you drive yourself batty trying to do it, or worse yet retype your text, let me show you how to resolve this maddening problem. I promise you that it is quick and easy.

Follow the steps below:

  • Click in the upper left cell of the table before the text.
  • Then just hit the Enter key.

Told you it was quick and easy, didn't I?
