When I insert a table in LO writer it immediately starts at the top of the next page as though a page break is inserted before the table. This frequently leaves a lot of white space where the free flowing text finishes and the table starts: it does not look very elegant and pushes up printing costs. It only seems to happen when the table is bigger (longer) than the remaining space on the page.

That's exactly why it occurs, of course - on the assumption that you want the table kept in one piece.

Does anybody know how to stop this so the table starts immediately after the free flowing text so there is no white space and the table splits across two or more pages?

Go to Table | Table Properties... | Text Flow (or right-click | Table... | Text Flow) and tick "Allow table to split across pages and columns". You may also want to tinker with "Allow row to break across pages and columns" for specific rows of the table.

Alternatively, you may need to remove the tick from Break (at the same place) if a page break before the table is your problem - but that doesn't quite fit your description of the symptoms.

I trust this helps.
