I've been searching the forums but haven't come across this particular question.
I created a table with a title, 3 columns each with their own header and 20 rows of data. I then adjusted the properties of the table to allow breaks and repeated top labels. My Table Break properties are:
Repeat top labels: Yes
Repeat bottom labels: No
Manual Positions: No
Manual heights: Yes
Break height: 2.5
Everything looks great! I like the way the table is now broken into several smaller "tables"/sections (about 3 rows per section). BUT my question is: Is there a way to simply change the title text of these smaller "tables"/sections so each break has its own unique text for its title? The repeat top labels property only allows the overall title to be repeated with the same text. Any changes I make to the title text is carried through all titles of these individual sections.
I've posted a picture for reference.

No, because they are set to mimic the top label properties.
If you want them to be different, that can't be the top label properties, they need their own label properties.
TABLE does not allow for more than one definition of each of the three types in one single table: you need different tables instead of one broken that copies it self over several times.
I guess this is a good spot to ask this, what is the mysterious "repeat bottom labels" in the table properties rollout. I am completely miffed about his. I want a bottom "title bar" that repeats also. I see no option in the table create dialogue to create a bottom "label" as they call it. I have 3 types, first row, second row then the REST, title-header-data option in each. I am using Acad 2009.
If anyone is interested, I wrote a routine to convert a manually drawn table of any size to a special delimited file for import into Excel simply by selecting at once (2 crossing selections) all the interior column & row lines. Just did it for a massive lighting schedule that was created and butchered for more than 12 years now, 220 or so items.
