Are you saying that you are not able to put the Title on the same line as the Number or that APA 7 REQUIRES that the Title MUST NOT be on the same line as the Number?

Yes, In APA 7 only the table number is on one line, then 2 lines down is the table title then the next line is the table. This does not coordinate with Word and the list of tables. The table titles do not appear in the list of tables.

@princesswriterkc Use Shift + Enter to create the new line for the title of the table.  The non-printing, new line character is ignored by the Table of Tables.

Hi Doug, I'll try it. But the Table 1 has no other information on that line. Then double space down is the title of the table. Will this suggestion work?

Thank you,

@princesswriterkc If you use SHIFT+ENTER twice to get the "double space", in the Table of Tables, there will be two spaces between the Table number and the text of the caption.

If the "double space" results from the formatting of the paragraph having the Line spacing set to "Double", in the Table of Tables, there will be one space between the Table number and the text of the caption
