Tables inserted as floating objects will not break at page boundaries.
Tables inserted as inline objects will break at page boundaries. Header rows will repeat on each page.
Which type of table is inserted depends on which mode you are in when the insert is done. If you have clicked in the text, and can see the blinking insertion point, you are in text mode, and the inserted table will be placed as an inline object, located at the insertion point.
Information applies to tables placed on Pages word processing documents.

Thanks, Barry - It is inline. I originally created this document in Word and then imported into Pages when I got so frustrated with Word I could scream! How can I find out if it thinks it's a word processing document or not at this point?
Anyway, after a little more experimenting, here's the weird thing... I'm trying to insert the table on a page with a Header and 1 other line of text - and then the table. It is refusing to keep the beginning of my table on THAT page. I have tried to continue building the table, and on every succeeding page, it DOES "wrap" properly onto the next page! It just won't let me keep it on that FIRST page...
What would cause this behavior?! And how can I fix it?!
Thanks so much!

Jacki, documents originally created in Word does sometimes give weird behaviour. If you send me the document I will try to make it work. Click on my blue name and you'll see my address.

Well... I found a work-around, but I'd still like to know "why" if anyone can help! What I found was if I remove the paragraph break from the line BEFORE the table starts - and instead put a couple of line breaks - then it will keep the table on the first page... I've checked things like "keep with next paragraph" but all of that is UNchecked - so not sure why that paragraph break would cause this?

I thought of that, too, and removed all but about 8 pts. of spacing below the paragraph (had to leave SOME or it would look crammed!) - still wouldn't put ANY of the table on the first page. Seems that even if I did put a lot of space after the paragraph before - that it would simply shorten the amount of the table it put on the first page, right? Not just throw the entire table to the next page? BTW, the rows in the table are all pretty short, so it's not that a row is too large to fit...
