The default page orientation in Word is Portrait mode, and most of the time this is how you are going to want to set up your documents. Simply put, Portrait mode means the page is longer than it is wide. Sometimes, however, when you are working with charts or when you’re creating something like fliers, you’ll want to turn the page so the horizontal edge is longer than the vertical edge. Fortunately, Word makes it easy to switch to Landscape mode.

2. From Table menu choose Properties
3. From Table menu choose the Sort
4. From Table menu choose Heading Rows Repeat

Correct Answer: ans4
To repeat the table heading in every page From Table menu choose Repeat Row Heading.

Repeat Heading Rows Sometimes, what seems to be a difficult problem has an easy built-in solution. I ran into that recently with a Word table that was several pages long. Of course, I wanted to repeat the table’s header row at the top of each page. That way, readers didn’t have to return to the table’s first page to learn what type of data was in a particular column. I had to stop and think for a minute, as I couldn’t remember ever doing this before.

Customized menus make it easy to miss built-in features. If you don’t use the item occasionally, Word doesn’t display the item on the menu! It’s less than intuitive, but I went back to the Table menu and clicked the double arrow to display all the menu items and there it was — Heading Rows Repeat.

To use this feature, simply click inside the header row and choose Heading Rows Repeat from the Table menu. It couldn’t be simpler. Word then displays the heading row at the top of every page as long as the table continues.
