Add Page break inside table

How to add Page break in page so that the content after the page break is displayed on next page but the table continues?

@Simran1365 Either Press CTRL+Enter where you want the page break to occur, or format the first paragraph in the row that you want to appear on a new page so that it has a Page Break Before it.

To force part of a table onto the next page, select the appropriate row and apply "Page break before" formatting, as Doug suggested. The table will continue to be one and the same after the break. 

 

Note that while adding a manual page break is a possibility, doing so will break the table into two. 

Hi @Stefan_Blom , @Doug_Robbins_Word_MVP , Thanks for your reply. I tried inserting page break.

So I am looking for splitting a single row into two pages. When I am inserting page break its taking me to a new page out of the table.

@Simran1365 Press Enter at the point in the row where you want the new page to be started and then select the text in the new paragraph created by pressing Enter and then via the Format>Paragraph dialog, format that paragraph so that it has a page break before it.

You will need to have that row of the table formatted so that it can break across a page.

Hi @Doug_Robbins_Word_MVP , Its working on two separate rows but not within one single row.

@Simran1365 If you want to force a row to split across a page break, the row MUST CONTAIN AT LEAST TWO PARAGRAPHS so that the second one can be formatted to have a page break before it.
