thank you. The information from support.office.com did not work. They just said to put the cursor before the first word in the cell and press Enter. It just put a blank line in the cell. your instructions of ctrl/shift enter worked beautifully

All your nice hints inserted a line before the table, but always Word 2010 inserted also a page break before the table or just after the first row of the table. This ruins the table title.
