Go to the Table Options
And in Rows and Columns
You can choose where the rows should start.
I already have a column to it's right, when I choose that it makes the text I want to appear there DISSAPPEAR.. it's jumping it somewhere, but I can't figure out where..
well.. I got it to work with a cut and paste thought there was an easier way though. thanks..
I really don't know what you wanted to do - you've confused me.
The bottom half of this table was supposed to be the second column in the same table. InDesign doesn't do that automatically; cut 'n paste is the way.
Looking at its contents: this must have been an OCR job, right? Lots of items that should have been separate lines ended up together; copying and pasting the columns next to each other will not help (and may even make it worse).
Convert the entire table to plain text, then place hard returns between the separate items where necessary ("ACEI" in the top row belongs to "angiotensin-et-cetera", "flD" should be "AD" and belongs to "Alzheimer's Disease" (misspelled in the original!), etc. When all items are on a line of their own, select the entire batch and convert it back to a table. It will be a one-column table at that point, so add one, select the bottom half, cut and paste it into place, then delete the empty bottom rows. (After making sure each abbreviation lines up with its correct full form, of course!)
THANK you! this job is a nightmare and I think you are right that it was generated using some kind of OCR we are having to fix so much it's ridiculous!
