Retyping may be the best option...seriously.
Inserting any WORD sourced content into an iBA file is an imprecise effort...at best. I'd hazard to say that if you are doing anything wrong, it lies in expecting a painless move from WORD to iBA
You can try to rework on the source side to better improve the results/reduce rework on the target side (this is meant to be a crafted recipe, where the time spent in trial/error is hoped to be less than the rework - means if you have tons of tables to be brought over, and once you get it right, the ROI is all worth it), or you can put all your effort into the target side rework, never looking back, or you can punt.
Punting would include, but not be limited to, good old global clipboard translation between apps with a simple select/copy/paste.
Good luck in any case.

BTW, I tried to retype the table, set up header to repeat on each page but table still hasn't been showing on the any other pages except 1st page.
What else do I need to set up?
I posted my screen shot in another topic 'Tables in landscape orientation'.

It looks whatever way I set up the table: paste it from Word, import Word file or set up the table from scratch in iba, if the amount of rows more than it can be fitted on one landscape page, the rest of rows disappear and can be seen only on portrait. And the feature 'Repeat Header Rows on Each Page' doesn't work.
IBA doesn't support multiple page tables. Proof me if I am wrong.

I have the same problem, wanting a table that extends over several pages, but my source was a FrameMaker doc. The only solution I've been able to come up with is to create tables on each page in landscape mode. The key to keeping the tables visable in portrait mode is that anything without a title is just a floating object, invisible in portrait mode, so you have to give each table its own title. I titled the first "table" and the following "table (cont.)" and it worked just fine. Also, if you want any control over where the tables sit, make them anchored instead of floating, so they'll flow with the text of your document.
Now, if I could just figure how to make a long table that flows across muiltiple pages on its own, I'd be a happy man (for a little while, at least)
