Microsoft Word – splitting a table

You may have created one long table, which you would now like to split into two.

To do so, position the cursor in the table in the first cell to be placed in the second table.

If working in Microsoft Word 2007, or Microsoft Word 2010, select the Table Tools Layout tab. In the Merge group, click Split Table. The table splits into two and you can then type text between tables, format the tables independently, etc.

If working in Microsoft Word 2003 or earlier, click Table – Split Table. The table splits into two and you can then type text between tables, format the tables independently, etc.

Clicking to the left of the first character in the first cell of the table, and pressing Enter should also have the same effect.
