When you need to have a table running over more than one page, there are a couple of simple tricks that will help your reader. One is to make sure that the headers of the table are repeated at the top of each new page and the other is to make sure that each row is not broken across two pages. You can fiddle about and do these manually, but did you know that Word can do both of these operations automatically for you? Simple. See these two posts for how.
