SUBJECT:°` ` ÂConverting 5.1 Tables to 5.0 Parallel ColumnsÆ(#` Æ

It is possible to convert WordPerfect 5.1 tables into WordPerfect
5.0 parallel columns. After creating a table in 5.1, press Ctrl-F5
for Text In/Out, 3 for Save As, and 2 for WordPerfect 5.0.

Bringing the WordPerfect 5.1 tables document directly into 5.0,
without using the Text In/Out feature causes [UNKNOWN] codes to
appear where table codes previously were.

To eliminate the double lines between the two tables one must enter
the tables and edit the lines with option 3. Option 3 will give a
listing of the sides of the table. Select the appropriate side and
change the line type to single for the top box and none for the
bottom box. This change will need to be made in each of the
individual cells.

SUBJECT: Ownership of Lines In A Table

Right and bottom lines are set to NONE except for in the cells
where they have to exist (i.e. bottom or far right cells.) In
other words all cells have a left and top line but only those cells
that form the bottom and right edges of the table have a bottom
and/or right side that display.

This information would be helpful when editing the lines between
the cells of a table. If you are in the first cell on the left and
want the right line to be none instead of single that editing would
have to be done from the second cell. This is because the first
cell is already set to NONE. Only the cell on the right has a
right side (or left if in the first cell). That line belongs to
the second cell. It is that cells left side.


For example. This is a table with four cells.

The right and bottom edges of the cells exist but are set to NONE
(not
display).

Each cell in a table has four borders and a setting for any one of
the four borders is independent of borders on adjoining cells. In
addition, there is no space between borders of adjoining cells.
Thus, a change to a border setting, when combined with the existing
border of an adjacent cell, may produce a thicker line than
expected. If you want to be sure what your borders will look like,
use View Document.

Have you ever wanted to print the text in a table without the
table? If so it can be done by simply changing the Graphics
Quality on the print menu to "Do Not Print". The opposite can be
done by changing the Text Quality to "Do Not Print" (Shift-F7 G or

Ô ‰?X ÔSUBJECT:°` ` ÂTables Lines Not Appearing As SelectedÆ(#` Æ

Problem:
This customer is having minor difficulties with the Tables feature.
Create a table with 5 columns and 5 rows. Block the third column
and press LINES, LEFT, DOUBLE. You will see the double line. Now
go to the second column and block it. Then press LINES, RIGHT,
SINGLE or DOTTED. You will not see it in the editing screen but
will see it in view document? I wonder why this happens? I would
appreciate it if you could explain it to me.


Answer:
If the user changes the top border of one cell and the bottom
border of the cell above the border styles will over write each
other with a slight offset. If you could refer the customer to
page 711 of the manual, 3rd paragraph down from the Lines
sub-heading, I think it will help. In the text screen it still
shows the dotted line because we are writing to the screen with
text characters only. The reason we allow the user to "combine"
line styles is to provide a wider variety of borders.

Ô ‰?X ÔSUBJECT:°` ` ÂTables Splitting CellsÆ(#` Æ

Problem:
Tables. If you set up 4 columns by 6 rows. Then go into cell A1
and split it into 3 columns, the lines are double lines. Anywhere
else in the table the lines are single. If you then go into cell
A2 and divide it into 4 columns it adjusts the columns A1, B1, and
C1 and makes A1, and B1 as small as Cells A2, B2, C2, D2. The
customer thinks it should not change his cell widths for cells a1,
b1, and c1.


Answer:
It is working properly. When a cell is split, the newly created
cells have the same border as the original cell. Since A1
originally had a double left border, the new cells have a double
left border. When a cell is split, the whole column is split, and
cells in the column that are not split become joined cells. Thus,
if your table is defined with 4 cells, A1 and B1 in the top two,
and A2, B2 in the bottom two cells, and you split A1 into two, then
your table becomes a matrix of 6 cells with A1, B1, and C1 across
the top and A2, B2, C2 in the bottom. The cell which originally
was B2 is now C2, and A2 even though you didn't touch it, is a
joined cell consisting of A2 and B2. If you do a split of a joined
cell, we use as many existing cell borders as possible, even if
some were previously invisible because of joining.


In the above example, if we didn't do this, column A would become
12 columns instead of just 4. If the customer really wants 4
evenly divided cells where A2 was, and 3 evenly divided cells where
A1 was, then he should divide column A into 12 cells and join the
cells he wants back together.

Problem:
Tables. If a user joins two cells, one above the other, and then
sets row height for the two cells at two multi-line fixed, the text
is not cut off at the end of the cell. Instead, it flows into the
cells below it.


Answer:
That's correct--if a cell is joined so that it consists of two
cells vertically, then the amount of text which fits in it is twice
the fixed height. If they want the text to be fixed at the fixed
row height, they should not join the cell; rather they should just
set the borders to none to get the desired effect.

Problem:
The user tried to go into Tables and change the bottom or right
lines to none, but it had no effect. The same is true when
selecting all sides as none. The top and left lines are removed,
but the bottom and right are not.


Answer:
As page 711 of the 5.1 manual tells us, changing all sides to none
did indeed set all sides to none. But, the cell to the right still
has the top and left side set to single. So, it is the lines set
for that cell to the right that are displaying, not lines for the
bottom and right of the current cell.

Problem:
TABLES. Create a table with 3 columns and 30 rows. While in the
table edit mode, block cells a2 through a5. Join these cells. Now
block cells b2 through b5. Join these cells. Now block cells c2
through c5. Join these cells and notice how we no longer have nice
large cells but the cells are shrunk to be the same as all the
others.


Answer:
The command you should use to make larger rows is Format. Joining
will eliminate cells in each column (see page 710 in the Manual).
In the example you explained, there are only 27 cells in a row
after you finish joining. Have the customer enter the number of
cells they desire. If they really only want 27, but want the
second row to be large, then please suggest the following:


Ô ‰?ø Ô1.ÂXÂCreate the table.Æ(#Æ

Multi-Auto (4). This option will let them include variable
amounts of text in each cell and row. Then the table will
size according to the amount of text they enter in each row's
cells. (If one cell has ten lines, and the others only have
two lines, then there will be a lot of blank space in those
two cells.) If the customer wants Row 2 to be a certain size,
they should select Multi-Fixed (3). Then they can specify the
Row Height they desire.Æ(#Æ

SUBJECT: Adding Attributes To Text Within A Table

Problem:
If one creates a table then blocks the table to give it a small or
fine attribute when text is moved from within the table (using
"ctrl Ins") when the cursor is moved to the new destination the
rest of the table no longer holds the first attribute change.

Answer:
Attributes should not be entered this way. One should first get
into table edit mode then block the table and select the attribute.
This way the attribute will become a part of the cell. Then when
any inserting, moving, or sorting is done the attributes will
remain constant.

Ô ‰?X ÔSUBJECT:°` ` ÂCell Attributes Don't Hold When Linking A SpreadsheetÆ(#` Æ

Problem:
When we bring a Lotus spreadsheet into a WordPerfect table, the
column attributes stay correct but the cell attributes are
overridden by the spreadsheet. When you are in Table Edit, and
press 2 for Format, the cell attributes say top, right, and normal.
To get the cell attributes to work correctly you then have to
manually edit the cell as well as get rid of the trailing space
that has been brought in. Is this the way spreadsheets should come
into a table?


Answer:
This is actually the way the program works. If you look in the
manual on page 658 under the title appearance, you will see that
WordPerfect tries to import the file in the same format as the
spreadsheet was in. The reason why the column format in WP holds
while the cell format changes is that spreadsheets format not by
columns, but by blocking and setting formats for each individual
cell. Therefore there is no spreadsheet format for columns to
override WP's settings. Spreadsheets also usually have a default
cell setting for numbers to be top, right justify and normal. This
is why you are getting this for the cell format in WP. The spaces
that are placed in the file when imported are there intentionally.
If the file being imported has extra characters such as brackets
around numbers or minus signs in front of numbers, the space is
used for these extra characters.

Ô ‰?X ÔSUBJECT:°` ` ÂRight Tabs With Dot Leaders In TablesÆ(#` Æ

Problem:
Right tabs with dot leaders in tables don't work. When you hit
indent to go to the tab stop that has been set as right with
leaders, the cursor goes there but doesn't give the leaders and
treats the tab as a left tab.


Answer:
This is the way the program is designed: the indent function
doesn't replace the tab function in tables. The indent still
functions just as it does in your regular document screen. Indent
is used to move multiple lines of text over in the document, and it
doesn't care what kind of tab is set it always treats tabs as left
tabs because it was designed to move text from the left margin. To
have the dot leader tab function as desired press Home, Home, Tab
instead of indent. (Home, Home, CtrlF6, AltF6 and ShiftF6 will
give dot
leader tabs for right align, flush right and center tabs.) There
are other options as well, read on.

You can set the right dot leader tab out in a normal document and
press indent and you will see that it will give you the equivalent
of a left tab and not a dot leader tab. Depending on what the
customer wants to do there are ways of getting dot leaders into
tables. Pressing flush right twice in a table cell will give you
a flush right dot leader in that cell. Pressing center twice in a
table cell will give you a center dot leader in that cell. The
customer could type in text at the left of the cell and then press
flush right twice and they would have flush left text, a dot
leader, and then flush right text in one cell; the same goes for
the center twice.

The program is functioning properly, however, with what you said
the customer was trying to do in tables.

SUBJECT: Tables And Decimal Align

Decimal align tabs settings in a document do not take affect in a
Table. If a user would like decimal align while in a Table they
may do so in two ways. The first would be to setup decimal align
while editing the Table. Steps for this would be:
1 - Press Alt-F7, 2 for Tables and 2 for Edit
2 - Select option 2 for Format
3 - Select option 2 for Column
4 - Select option 3 for Justify and option 5 for Decimal
5 - Exit back to the editing screen

(Read in the manual for steps to format multiple columns.)


The second option a user has for obtaining Decimal Align is to
simply press Tab Align (Ctrl-F6) while typing in the Table. Tab
Align will conform to the tab settings in the document and only
align that text which is typed after the key is pressed.

If a specific decimal tab is needed, the tab set code should be
placed before the table definition code.

To merge into a WordPerfect 5.1 table and have the table
automatically increase the number of rows as needed, use the
following format:

As the file merges, the table will expand in size. That is, the
number of rows needed for all of the records will be added. There
will be a blank line at the bottom of the final merged table. The
bottom line of each cell will become double.


Users wishing to keep the bottom line single can add an extra row
to the table before running the merge. After the merge is
complete, the user can delete the extra rows. Users do not have to
enter Table Edit to delete the row. They need only to position the
cursor in the extra row and pressing Ctrl-Delete.

Ô ‰?X ÔSUBJECT:°` ` ÂTables And Merge Fewer Records Than CellsÆ(#` Æ

Problem:
The customer is trying to merge into tables. When he has fewer
records than cells in the table, the remaining cells all print out
with the {field}1~ codes in the cells. He then tried to put a
{QUIT} command in his secondary file and merged again, but this
time it generated correctly as long as he had secondary records.
Although, it stopped printing out his table when it ran out of
records. The user wants to keep his table one size and then be
able to use it as his primary file using different secondary files
of varying lengths.


Answer:
Currently, the customer needs to use the {QUIT} command at the end
of the secondary file. The reason why the field codes are left in
the document is that the merge can still be continued or completed
at a later date when wanted (when the {QUIT} command is used). You
might want to request an enhancement for an additional merge
command to end the merge without leaving behind merge commands.
Until there is an enhancement, the field codes are left in the
document. The following macro will delete the field codes for him:


{DISPLAY OFF}
{ON NOT FOUND}{GO}end~~
{LABEL}Start~
{Search}{Merge Codes}1{Search}
{Backspace}{Block}{Search}~{Search}{Backspace}y
{GO}Start~

Problem:
The user cannot save tables in ASCII format (through Text in/out)
without the hard pages. The user would like the text left in
columns just as it is in the tables.


Answer:
Exporting to ASCII format will strip all WordPerfect Codes from the
document. A document containing Tables when exported to ASCII will
replace cell codes and THEN separate each row with a hard page
break, and finally the TABLE DEFINITION is removed (this is not in
order of how the codes are actually stripped). To avoid this
simply remove the table definition before exporting the file to
ASCII. As the document is exported, WordPerfect will have already
removed the table definitions and cell codes, and rows will then
be separated by [HRt] codes. However, ASCII format will strip the
TAB codes inserted by WP when the TABLE DEFINITION is deleted. The
document will appear in ASCII as if separated by tabs, however
there won't be any WP codes in the document. ASCII will not
support the text to appear exactly as it does in WP.

Ô ‰? ÔSUBJECT:°` ` ÂTables Vertical Centering and Fixed Line HeightÆ(#` Æ

Problem:
The vertical centering in table cells appears incorrect when using
fixed line height.


Answer from Development:
Vertically centering text in a cell first determines how much white
space exists in the cell, then takes 1/2 that amount and adds it to
the vertical position at the start of the cell. On a line with a
fixed line height, the font height for any font is equal to the
fixed line height, i.e., if I set fixed line height to 1", a 12
point font will take 1".

When we actually print the text, we assume the top shoulder to take
up 3/4 of the fixed line height amount and the bottom shoulder to
take the remaining 1/4 of the fixed line height. If you are using
a 12 point font with a 1" fixed line height, the baseline of the
font will be positioned .75" down in the cell, but the entire
height of the text, which is 1", will be centered in the cell.
This "problem" disappears if the fixed line height closely matches
the true height of the font.

Problem:
Can't delete a math definition out of a table cell. You have to
delete the row and put a new one in. So, if you put a sub-total
say in cell a4, and later decide that you don't want it, there is
no provision to take it out.


Answer:
To delete the formula in a table math cell you use the Ctrl-End
which is the Delete to End of Line (DOL) function. If additional
text appears on the line suggest that the user place the cursor in
the cell and press backspace. This will delete the formula and
leave the text. This is knowledge from my own experience.

Problem:
Using Math within Tables, create a very small table, 3 rows 5
columns. Put in 1 (down arrow), 2 (down arrow), 3 (Down arrow)
then select table edit 5, and 4 for add. It will add properly, but
if you forgot to put in a number and delete the first total and
insert the number 4, then down arrow and add again, it will give
you a total of zero. Where you inserted the number 4, it is still
holding the code from adding +=.

Answer:
This is working as designed. You need to delete the "+" in the
cell, then go ahead with other calculations. The "+" needs to be
deleted by using Ctrl-End or Backspace. Then you can make the
formula changes that you want.

Problem:
Can you set right aligned tabs in tables? The right aligned tab

Answer:
You can put a right tab in a table. However, you can only insert
a hard right tab, [RGT TAB], not a soft right tab [Rgt Tab]. The
way you insert the hard right tab, is by pressing Home, Alt-F6
(Flush Right). This works in or out of tables. This uses the next
tab stop, no matter what kind it is (left, right, center), as the
tab stop for the [RGT TAB]. You don't put a right tab in a table
by setting a tab stop to be right aligned and then tabbing to it,
you have to press Home, Alt-F6.

Problem:

Answer:
You can't move the text in a column, in a table, to outside of the
table in one step. Blocking a rectangle, or tabular column, only
blocks one cell. You can do the following: Block the entire
table, and move it out of the table. Then, block a rectangle or

Ô ‰?X ÔSUBJECT:°` ` ÂTables Math Numbers Must Fit On One LineÆ(#` Æ

Problem:
5.1 Math in Tables. The customer created a table using 10 columns
across and 30 rows down. He uses a formula. A13 is the initial
number such as 50, the formula for B13 is A13+300, the formula for
C13 is B13+300, and so on, all the way to the last column, but when
he calculates it gets to 1,250.00 for E13, but then starts over at
300 for F13, and then G13 is 600.


Answer:
In a table, if a cell is addressed through a formula, and there are
2 numbers in the cell, the bottom one is used in the formula. In
this case, the number was wrapping to the second line because there
was not enough room for it on the first line. When this happens WP
treats the number as two separate numbers, and uses the bottom one
in the formula. In this case, the bottom number was .00, and so
the formula used 0 to calculate. So, WP was calculating correctly.
Customers just need to make sure that the numbers they are using
fit onto one line.

Most users who want to have an Cross-reference for a table will

footnotes in the table. If they attempt to put the table in a box,
the footnotes will be lost. In this situation, the user can create
"fake" or "bogus" endnotes and use the endnote number for the
reference. The user would create the endnote and not put any
information into it. It would probably be best to specify that the
endnotes print on a separate page, and then this page could be
discarded. When the Cross-reference is created, the user should
specify the endnote as the target.

a blank page. There isn't a soft page break code in Reveal Codes.


Answer:
The table off code is also a hard page code, thus this is working
as designed. The user could use conditional end of page to get
around the problem. If he put a conditional end of page code
before the table off code, and used a large number for the number
of lines to keep it together, it will give him the desired effect.
We used 60 for the number of lines to keep together.

Problem:
In Tables, if the "Row Height" is set to "Multi-line Fixed" and the
row is used as a header, only the first couple of lines show in
View Document or on the printed page.


Answer:
When the fixed line height is used in Tables, whether single or
multi-line, you will get only that much room on the printed page
for text. If you have entered more text in the cell than it can
hold it will still display on the editing screen, but only the
amount of text that will fit in the specified height will print.
Also, the cell borders must be taken into account when using fixed
line height or you may get less printed text than you expected.
The default borders are .1" on top and bottom.

SUBJECT: Tables - Obtaining Totals With A Formula

When a customer is trying to get a total (=) of subtotals (+) in
the Table feature and they say it is not calculating correctly make
sure that the customer has more than one subtotal character "+."
If there is only one subtotal character one may want to change to
a formula for obtaining the "total". For example if a customer had
two subtotals, one which was obtained with a subtotal character
(cell d7) and the other with a formula (cell d9 "d7=.07"), a total
cannot be obtained with the equal sign (=). In order to get the
final total the user would need to use an additional formula which
would add the two cells together (cell d10 "d7+d9").

Problem:
When joining cells vertically within a table and then joining the
last column in the table, the table will lose the last 5 rows and
the whole table is rewritten. I have duplicated this situation by
creating a table with 6 rows and 6 columns. Then, blocked each
column to join the cells and lost all 5 rows after joining the last
column. I know this is how tables should probably work, but would
this be an enhancement or an STR problem? Also happens on the
03/30/90 release.

Answer:
This is working as designed. When you join all of the same rows in
each column, WP will condense it down to the normal cell size. You
can use fixed row height to insure a particular height of a cell,
but with the keystrokes supplied you may as well have created a
table 1 row by 6 columns (that's what WP gives you in the end).
The options to avoid this situation are to use a fixed row height
and/or not joining all of the rows.

When a 5.1 file containing tables is saved in 5.0 format, the table
is converted to Parallel Columns. If a user saves a file in 5.0
format, and does not also save it in 5.1 format, then wants to have
the table back in 5.1 format, WordPerfect provides a feature under
Tables to convert parallel columns to tables. According to the
WordPerfect 5.1 manual, "If you are converting parallel columns,
the parallel column definitions will be used to define the table
columns, while Hard Page codes will define the table rows." The
steps to convert parallel columns (as from a WP 5.0 file) to a
table are:
Ô ‰?ð
Ô1.ÂXÂBlock to text to be converted to the table.Æ(#Æ
Ô ‰?¸ Ô2.ÂXÂGo to the Table feature (Alt-F7, 2) and select Create (1).Æ(#Æ
Ô ‰?€ Ô3.ÂXÂAt this point you are given the options to Create Table from:
1 Tabular Column; 2 Parallel Column. Selection option 2.Æ(#Æ


This feature works very well, however, the column widths will not
always match what was in the original 5.1 table definition. If the
original table was defined as being from margin to margin, the user
can restore his table very easily with just a little bit of extra
manipulation. The steps to do this are:
Ô ‰?ˆ Ô1.ÂXÂIn Table Edit, Block the entire table.Æ(#Æ
Ô ‰?P Ô2.ÂXÂPress Control-F4 and select Block (1), then Move (1).Æ(#Æ
Ô ‰? Ô3.ÂXÂExit Table Edit mode. Block everything from the Table
Definition code to the Table Off code and delete.Æ(#Æ
Ô ‰?¨ Ô4.ÂXÂCreate a new table with the same number of rows and columns as
the original table (Alt-F7, 2, 1, # , # ).Æ(#Æ
Ô ‰?8 Ô5.ÂXÂIn Table Edit mode, position the cursor in the first cell and
press Shift-F10 and select 1 for Block. This retrieves the
text of the converted table into the new, properly formatted
table.Æ(#Æ

The user may also set tab settings that will line up the
information into a tabular table. After setting the tabs, block
the text and create a Table.
All of the columns will line up and the customer can then adjust
the Table as desired.

Ô ‰? ÔSUBJECT:°` ` ÂTables - Discontinuing A HeaderÆ(#` Æ

A customer created a table that spanned two pages. The customer
also created a Header under the Format menu (Shift-F8, #2 Page, #3
Headers). The customer did not use the Table Header feature. He
wanted to discontinue the header from appearing on the second page
after it had initially been created for every page. To accomplish
this, if you move to the last cell of the Table on the first page,
and then go into Format and discontinue the Header, it will remain
on the first page but it will be removed from subsequent pages.

Users often times select a Table Header without knowing it. When
a user presses Table option 4 for Headers the program copies the
information in that row into the header. A code does not appear in
Reveal Codes to show this has been done. The only way to see it,
while on the document screen, is to look at the Status Line. The
Status Line will appear with an asterisk after the cell number when
a header has been defined. As mentioned above you can deselect the
header. To do so select option 4 again for Header and change the
number of header rows back to 0.

Problem:
The customer created a text box with gray shading. He set the
width and let WP set the height. Then he created a table inside
the text box. When he prints or views the document, the gray
shading of the text box extends one row beyond the table.

Answer:
The following is the proper way to add shading to a table:
Ô ‰?(
Ô1.ÂXÂBlock the cells you want shadedÆ(#Æ

Ô2.ÂXÂSelect option 3 for linesÆ(#Æ
Ô ‰?¸ Ô3.ÂXÂSelect option 8 for shadeÆ(#Æ

You can control the shading intensity by selecting 6 for options.
According to development, the [Table off] statement is interpreted
as a HRt that adds an extra blank line to the table. The shading
extends below the table to cover the blank line. The work around
is to use the shading option in table format.

Problem:
In a 2 column table, column 1 is text, column 2 is equations. The
text doesn't vertically align with the equations.

Answer:
The caption in an equation will line up with the top line of the
equation unless you place it above or below the equation. The
equation is treated as a graphic and when it is centered
vertically, it centers the entire graphic including the caption and
the outside border space of .083" (unless this default is changed).
Because the caption is part of the graphic (equation) it will not
necessarily line up with the text in the next cell. One way to get
the text and equations is to use advance when creating the caption
to move it up or down. Or putting the caption to be above the
equation in the Equation options (Alt-F9, 6,4,7) and set the tables
vertical alignment to top (from the table edit screen - 2, 1, 4,
1), will them line up.

Tables may include centered decimal aligned tabs. To create the
tabs the user must first move above the Table and set the decimal
tabs. (One must estimate the center of the column). With the tabs
set, the text may be entered. To tab to the center position, press
Control-V, then HOME and TAB simultaneously (this creates a Hard
Tab). If the HOME and TAB keys are not pressed at the same time,
a Ctrl H (^H) appears in the column. The Home Tab protects any
changes from being made to the decimal tab setting from a separate
tab setting within the Table. The customer can choose not use the
Hard Tab, but they must realize that if another tab setting is
defined, the decimal tab setting may also change.

Problem:
If the customer places a formula in the lower right hand corner of
a Table, and also in the upper right hand corner (same formula), he
must press Calculate twice before it will total the number in the
upper right hand corner. I can duplicate this in the latest
release.

Answer:
When WP calculates, it starts at the top and then calculates from
left to right. Then, WP goes down to the next row and does the
same thing over again. If, in one of the formulas you address a
cell that's down on the page somewhere, WP will grab the current
value for that cell and use it in the calculation. When it gets to
the cell in the normal procedure of things, WP will calculate it
but it may have a different value. At this point, the first
formula that addressed this cell is not recalculated but appears to
be incorrect because of the new value. Actually, it is correct
according to what the value was at the time. Thus, the second
calculation is correct with all the right values. The only
workarounds are to actually calculate twice, or avoid addressing
cells in a formula that still need to be calculated.

Problem:
When the user places a footnote on a decimal aligned number, the

the footnote remains.

Answer:
This is working as designed. There is only room for two characters
beyond the decimal place. There is no where else for the footnote
to go. If WordPerfect put the footnote number on the same line, it
may overlap the cell border. To make enough room for the note
number, set the cell or column for three digits.

Problem:
If the user sets a table border option code, creates a table, views

characters appear in the first cell, followed by what appears to be
a soft page break. The characters do not appear in Reveal Codes
and they disappear if the screen is rewritten. The document can be
viewed, printed, and saved with no apparent problems.

Answer:
This is working as designed. You cannot have two border codes side
by side. When the border option code is entered in the middle of
the table, the code automatically goes to the beginning of the
table. If there is already a border code in the document, then
there will be two conflicting codes side by side. It would be
better to have just one border option code and then delete the
border code you don't need. If you have two border option codes in
the file, the table does not look correct, but if you rewrite the
screen, the file will rewrite itself correctly.

Problem:
A customer has a table that spans over a page break, and the bottom

Answer:
There is a work around for this problem. Have the customer place
the cursor in the first cell on the second page, and press
Ctrl-Enter for a Hard Page. Then go into Table Edit, and place the
cursor in the first cell on the second page. Now select Ins, 1 for
Rows, 1 for the Number of Rows to add, and press Enter. Place the
cursor in the new row, press 2 for Format, 3 for Row Height, 1 for

Table Edit (Alt-F7) and assign attributes to the cell by pressing
2-Format, 1-Cell, and 2-Attributes. If attributes are assigned
outside of Table Edit, you can look in Reveal Codes to see what has
been assigned to the text. If attributes are assigned within Table
Edit, press Alt-F7 and 2 for Format. Any attributes or
justification that has been assigned to the cell will be listed
above the options line. No attributes will be seen in Reveal Codes
if done through Table Edit.

(Please see memo 052 for more information on attributes for
tables.)

Ô ‰? ÔSUBJECT:°` ` ÂTables - Creating Side By Side TablesÆ(#` Æ

If you create a large table, you can "divide" it to give the
appearance of side by side columns. For example, you need two
tables with five columns each. Create a table that has 11 columns
and use the middle columns as the "divider." This can be done in
Table Edit (Alt-F7) by blocking the sixth column and choosing None
for the inside lines.

Ô ‰?X ÔSUBJECT:°` ` ÂTable - Last Row Bumped To Second PageÆ(#` Æ

Problem:
WordPerfect is not allowing a row to fit on a table even though
there is plenty of room on the page. The table is 3 columns by 9
rows, and the table rows are formatted as multiple line fixed.
Each row is 1" tall, and the table fills the page exactly leaving
1" top and bottom margins. If you type text in the last row on the
page, a soft page [SPg] is placed in the document, and the row is
bumped to the next page. However, View Document shows that there
is room for that last row.

Answer:
This is working correctly. The space allotted for the horizontal
lines is taking up some of the 9 inches of the page. In the above
example, the last cell starts at 9.11". What would happen if you
typed 1 full inch of text in this cell? The last row would end up
at 10.11", and this would overlap the 1" margin. So, WordPerfect
wraps the whole row to the next page. This is an example of the
importance of the line thickness options in Shift-F8, 4, 8.

Ô ‰? ÔSUBJECT:°` ` ÂSort - Sorting Decimal Numbers In A TableÆ(#` Æ

It is possible to perform a sort on decimal numbers (e.g.,
08.090.090) in a table. This can be done by considering the
decimal to be a word separator. Because the second decimal is
ignored, the third number will not sort unless the first decimal is
removed.

Ô ‰? ÔSUBJECT:°` ` ÂTables In Footers Are .25" Above Bottom MarginÆ(#` Æ

When a table is created in a footer, with no additional text below
it, the table will be .25" above the bottom margin. This is
working as designed. The table off code is always placed on a line
by itself at the end of the table (accounting for the extra space).
However, to place the table at the bottom margin, use an advance up
code of .167" immediately after the table off code.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
