Convert Specific Table Row (heading) row to Text

Hi - is there a way to convert only a specific row or selected rows to text in FM (2015?)

The reason I need to do this is because (have numerous instances of)  a repeated header row that then gets tied up with the next table's header in a set of sequencing headers.

The only way I have figured out around this is to convert the table to text and reformat the offending table, but the tables are long and detailed, and I really just want to cut out that specific repeating header.

Alternatively, what is (is there) a method for converting a header row to a body row? Maybe that would isolate the problem, not certain.

Thanks.

Another option would be - is there a sold way to break a table in two?

I have tried Row Format > Top of Page (while deselecting Keep with Next) but that does not seem to work.

Thx

There was an Add-on called Table Cleaner, which might be helpful.

I am not sure if it is still available

TableCleaner deletes unused Tables.

I also have an Add-On, which converts tablerow to tableheader.

I could write this Add-On next few days.

It does many other things, including converting formats. But I am not sure if it has the requested functionality

Correct, TableCleaner unfortunately does not do this.

How would your add-on to Table Cleaner work?

Thx.
