I use this code:

\caption{Offsets 2}
student status  &  location type  & outside region & approved outside area (ha) & delivery agent\\ \hline \hline
Current         &  Restoration    & Northwest john Province & 476.0 & 
If the position ... \\ \hline

But the table is going outside the page. Is there any way that page don't go outside the page and shrink accoring to content and fit on page.

Could you please provide a MWE? A more readable indentation would be a huge help as well. – Betohaku May 3 '13 at 6:38

Yes, for example you can chenge




Of, course 2cm is only an example of width. This gives a paragraph, so entries are never (well, rarely) too long.

that was perfect , i got that. Is there any way to put the caption on the top of table and remove table 5 text from there – user17 May 3 '13 at 14:01
@user17 But the caption is over (on the top of) the table. Do you mean the same table, as in your question? – Przemysław Scherwentke May 3 '13 at 14:22
