It is so frustrating after you create your table, have it all formatted the way you want it and have keyed in all your text and then you decide you want to key in text above the table. Ever have that experience? I bet more than a few of you have. You certainly don't want to start over from scratch!

Well you might not believe it but I am going to tell you the simplest way ever to get that blank space above your table so you can key in any sort of text you like leading into your table.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  • Click in the upper left cell of your table.
  • If there is text in that cell, please be sure to put the cursor before your text.  
  • Tap the Enter key.

That's it! You now have your space before your table. I told you it was really simple, didn't I?
