Repeating Table Headers at the Top of Each Page

When a table is more than 1-page long, the header row only appears at the top of the first page. You can turn the header on at the top of each page using the Format Table option.

  1. Hover your mouse over the top border of the table. You will see the 4-arrow cursor.

  6. Click OK to apply the change and exit.

Your column headers will now show at the top of each page.

Display Break Headers at the Top of Each Page

When you add breaks to your reports, the header row will be displayed at the top of each break. If you would prefer to just show the header at the top of each page:

  1. Right-click in the column that contains the break.
  2. Select Breaks > Manage Breaks from the right-click menu
  3. Under Display Properties, uncheck Break header
