How to fix table overlap and row separation

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to format my Master's thesis but Word 2010 is fighting with me. I have some tables and they are overlapping. Rows of one table separate from the rest of the table and end up 3 pages earlier. I would just like the tables to appear after a section of text and remain as a whole.

Also the Table description/figure label keeps being orphaned.

I have played around with the table/figure properties but nothing seems to stick. As soon as I add more text or move something before the table the formatting is gone again.

Hope they addressed issues with figures/tables in the new 2013 version!

Can anyone help or explain what might be causing these issues?

Thanks for your time.
Thanks, HansV!

I went through the table properties and had to change a few things. One of the options in a submenu was "overlapping". Once I unchecked that, checked "keep with text" and changed a few other position options I got it to cooperate more.

Thank you for your time and answer :)
