fixed size table in Word

As a recent convert to Microsoft Word, one thing that impressed me was the way that a table grew in size as more text was added inside it.

However, now I'd like the table to stay the same size as words were entered inside it, thus forcing users to keep their prose to fit on an A5 page. Any ideas?

Lets you set row height, but you can still enter more text you just cant see it.

The alternative is to create a Form. Look at Forms in the Help to see how to do this.

Thanks for both replies. I've used Noldi's suggestion as this made it easy to convert a previous table that people were complaining about.

Creating a form looks interesting too. I'll have a look at that.
