Can't remove unwanted page break before table

In my text I have a number of paragraphs, then a table, then another paragraph and another table. The second table insists on positioning itself on a new page. Like so:

Paragraph Paragraph End of page Start of page Paragraph Paragraph ... Paragraph Paragraph [TABLE 1] End of page Start of page Paragraph (lots of empty space) End of page Start of page [TABLE 2] Paragraph Paragraph ...etc.

No matter what I do, I cannot get the second table to move up. A small amount of text follows the first table, then the rest of the page is empty, and the second table is positioned on a new page. It's as if I'd hit Ctrl-Enter to insert a page break, except I haven't and there is no page break there, or if there is it is invisible and can't be removed. If I hit delete after the final paragraph before the table, the cursor will simply position itself into the first table field.

What am I missing?

It does. Should it or shouldn't it?
