Inserting Blank Space Above a Table
In older versions of Microsoft Word, it was difficult to add blank space above a table that appeared at the top of a page. You couldn't click in the blank space to add blank space because there was no blank space to click in! Word 2000 fixes this glitch in an elegant way. If you simply position the insertion point in the first row of your table and press Enter, a paragraph is inserted above your table. Note that this technique works only when your table is at the top of a page without blank space above, which is the only time it is needed. The rest of the time, this operation inserts a paragraph into a cell of the table itself.
