A Word table may appear cropped or cut off when it is displayed or printed in Word or a different program. This problem may occur if you draw or extend the left border of a table into the left margin area of a Word document, and you do any of the following:
This problem occurs when you draw or resize your table boundaries within the left margin area of your Word document. When you do this, Word assigns a negative left indentation on your Word table to force the table into the margin area (outside of the normal text area of your Word document).
When you copy and paste your Word table into a different Word document, a different section, or a different program, the table is inserted in relation to the left margin setting of the program or document. This may result in the Word table being cropped or cut off.
This problem also can occur when you insert a Word file into a different document that contains a table that extends into the left margin of the inserted file, or when you save your Word document as a Web page. This problem does not occur when your Word table is formatted with text wrapping.
To prevent this problem, use the appropriate method for your situation.
