Can't Select Row or Column Headers AutoCAD 2013 Table

Hello All, I've been working at updating our drawing templates in AutoCAD M
echanical 2013. I have created several new tables and modified them success
fully. Now it seems that I am unable to select the row or column headers of
the newly created tables in order to modify them. When I try to select the
headers, it just deselects the table. If I click directly on the table, a
caption with the table number and an asterisk preceding it appears (for exa
mple: "ACAD_TABLE (*T21)". What is confusing to me is that I was able to se
lect the headers earlier in the same session, but can not now. When I creat
e a new table in this template, I have the same problem. However, if I crea
te a table in a different drawing, all works normally. That tells me that t
he issue is unique to this drawing. I am still able to select and modify on
e table cell at a time, but that is time consuming.I must have unknowingly
turned on/off some option or another. Can anyone please point me in the rig
ht direction? Thanks, Paul

Just as a quick follow up; this morning I saved a copy of the DWT file as a DWG and the problem disappeared. I then saved that DWG as a DWT; again, no issues. I'd still like to know why this occurs if any one knows. Thanks ag ain.
