I've used MS Word for 25 years, and I've never seen this before. I just pasted several Excel tables into a Word document and now the text in the rest of the document is doing odd things. Individual paragraphs have extra space before and after -- even though I've changed the paragraph settings to: line spacing is set to Single (or 12pt line spacing) "Space Before" is set to zero "Space After" is set to zero "Keep with Next Paragraph" and other flow settings have been turned off. The style of this text is not set to "Normal (Web)" and I've tried "clear formatting." In fact, I tried "clear formatting" for the entire document, and all of the paragraphs (which are now single-spaced) still have the big gap after the paragraph. I do edit with the "invisibles" turned on -- so there are no extra lines between paragraphs. I have also tried reformatting Normal style. Any ideas on how to correct this odd spacing problem? Thanks!
