How to Repeat Table Headers in Word (On Every Page!)

When working with tables that span multiple pages, it’s essential to ensure that the table headers are repeated on every page for better readability and understanding. In this article, we will guide you through the process of repeating table headers in Word.

Step 1: Creating the Table

The first step is to create the table in your Word document. To do this, place your cursor at the location where you want the table to appear. Then, navigate to the “Insert” tab on the Word ribbon and click on the “Table” button. Choose the number of rows and columns you need for your table, and it will be inserted into your document.

Step 2: Adding Headers

Once the table is inserted, you need to designate the top row as the header row. This row will contain the column headings you want to repeat on every page. To mark the row as the header row, click anywhere within the row to select it.

Step 3: Making the Header Repeat

Right-click on the header row, and from the context menu that appears, select “Table Properties.” In the “Table Properties” dialog box, navigate to the “Row” tab. Under the “Options” section, tick-mark both of the checkboxes. Then press “Ok”. Done!


Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to repeat table headers in Word on every page. By following these steps, you can ensure that your tables are well-organized and easily comprehensible, even when spanning multiple pages.
