Repeat Table Header Row and Sort Columns

Postby flareuser1 on Wed Apr 14, 2021 2:04 pm

I'm looking for help with making my table headers repeat, like the "repeat header row" option for tables in Word. I'd also like the columns to be sortable, but I don't see an option for that in the table styles. Has anyone been able to create sortable table columns?

To create a repeating header, I tried adding "position: sticky;" and "top: 0;" to the tableheader css, but that just made the header row fixed to one position, and everything else on the page scrolled behind it. I'm not sure how to get the header row to repeat but then stop after the last table row.

Thank you!

To add header rows, or footer rows to a table, right click the table and choose Table Properties. In the General tab and Table Size section, add as many or few header/footer rows as you like. These will automatically repeat at the top/bottom of each page of the table.

Not sure what you mean about making columns sortable. If you select rows in the table and right click/select Sort you can choose how the data is presented. You can't make the table live-sortable in the output format.

Hope that helps,
