Is it possible to get a running header for a table

Jun 23, 2011 at 3:07 AM

I have a large table that spans several pages. How can I create a running header on each page of the table? That is, if the table extends to a new page, I want to repeat the table header in the first row of that page. Is this possible with PHPWord?

Thank you,

I'd like to do the same thing.

I found this article:


Repeated table headings are visible only in Print Layout view or when you print the document.

  1. Select the heading row or rows. The selection must include the first row of the table.
  2. Under Table Tools, on the Layout tab, in the Data group, click Repeat Header Rows.

Note   Microsoft Office Word automatically repeats table headings on new pages that result from automatic page breaks. Word does not repeat a heading if you insert a manual page break within a table.


You might reverse engineer the required code? Create a Word doc with a repeating table header. Save it as a then look at the xml used to create the repeating header?
