Word: Insert Text Above A Top-Line Table
Ever created a table at the top of a word document, then wanted to put a line of text on top of the table? No fun huh! When you try clicking the mouse above the table, the mouse keeps positioning itself in the first cell of the table, not above it. You could insert an extra row above the first to give yourself a place to type, but then you would have to remove the borders and merge the cells after typing the caption.
Fortunately, you can accomplish your goal without all that formatting, and this is how we do it:
1. Click in the upper left-hand corner of the first cell in the first row (before any text).
2. Press the Enter key.
3. Word inserts a line above the table and positions the mouse pointer at the beginning of the line, where you can now type the caption
