Option to skip first header row of a table
Upon creating a table that has a header row and another 'header row' that is located in the middle of the table, it is not possible for the header row in the middle of the table to repeat when the table extends onto a new page. (This feature currently only works with the header that is the very first row of the table)
If the 'header row' in the middle of the table is also placed as the first row in the table, then a "Skip First Header Row" feature would be able to hide that first row but enable it to repeat on each subsequent page.
This feature has been seen in MS Word plugins but is not compatible with Word itself, causing that option from the plugin to fail.
Thanks for your feedback! We’re reviewing your suggestion.
Also, sometimes the header row is two rows at the top of the table e.g. the first row being some measurement label and the 2nd row holding the units for each column
I've encountered thee situations in the last few days alone where this functionality would have been a godsend.

You can have multiple header rows, but they must be contiguous.
This would be a very useful feature to have. If a table has multiple header rows it would be nice to have an option to repeat the last one. This would come in handy for very long tables.

As recommended by Microsoft, I have posted an enhancement idea to their suggestion box regarding an option to eliminate the double header in BAAGs and Benefit Charts. However, in order to get any form of response from them, we need at least 20 votes for the suggestion. Please see the below link to cast your votes, and spread the word around your work area in order to make it to 20.

The BAAG now is generated in a PDF file and makes it hard to update and make necessary changes. Please consider the suggested fix to this issue.
