Have you got the Wrap text option checked, and the left and right cell margins set to something greater than zero? (Table/properties/cell/options.)

The cells of tables in Word have a margin either side just like page setup does and this can be altered to allow a couple of extra characters to fit on the same line within the cell without enlarging the cell itself.

Right click in the Table and choose Table properties then options tab. You will see that both the right/left margins are set to 0.08 as default. these can be reduced for the whole table or by clicking on the Cell tab the cell only.

These settings can be used for just the table you are working on or made default for all tables. j.
