I have a longtable, that is inputted to the main-file using LTXTable, but it does not work, when the longtable is more than one page long.
The latex-code for the table can be found here: http://latex.lsm-consult.dk/longtable.tex
The main latex-code can be found here http://latex.lsm-consult.dk/timereg.tex
The other latex-files can be found at http://latex.lsm-consult.dk/auto1.tex and http://latex.lsm-consult.dk/payinfo.tex
And the payinfo.tex refered to in the error-output can be replaced by an empty file.
And the errors are

LaTeX Warning: Reference `LastPage' on page 1 undefined on input line 49.

Can anybody in here give me a clue of what I am doing wrong?
I can of course also put the main file on my page, if you need it

Please provide a full minimal example, i.e. a file that is compilable. What is the Y column specifier in this case? The error means that somewhere you have too many &'s, wrapping a preamble around it and changing Y to l, and it compiles fine. So please provide a bit more information. – daleif Mar 10 '11 at 19:53
@daleif Now I have provided a full minimal example in my question. You can also find, what Y means in the main-file. I can not find the place, where I have to many &'s, too less columns or forgotten a \\ – The87Boy Mar 10 '11 at 20:11
@The87Boy: using the code you linked to I can compile without errors (after commenting out the line that loads the uarial package, which I don't have installed). – Gonzalo Medina Mar 10 '11 at 20:29
Interesting, I started having your error, then I downloaded everything again, and it went away. Only thing I did was to insert the longtable.tex name in the \LTXtable command – daleif Mar 10 '11 at 20:33
Do you have 2 pages or more? If you only have 1, could you then try to add some pages, as I then have removed too much information from the main-page – The87Boy Mar 10 '11 at 20:38

! Extra alignment tab has been changed to \cr.

you have defined too less columns for the table or forgotton a \\ at a tabular line end.

the above links with your code works well for me. – Herbert Mar 10 '11 at 20:27
@Herbert That sounds strange. Do it output more than one page? If it only output one page, could you then try to add some more rows, so it generates 2 pages or more? – The87Boy Mar 10 '11 at 20:33
@The87Boy: start at the end of the longtable and comment every line out until the error went away. – Herbert Mar 10 '11 at 20:48
@The87Boy: from my point of view it is a problem with one of the packages. Please comment out step by step any additional package except longtable and colortbl. – Herbert Mar 11 '11 at 6:57
