I have some tables with wider column content, I have 8 columns. The whole table is not displayed in LaTeX, when I reduce the font size also there is no result. I have about 7 tables in single .tex document. If I use the rotating package all the tables are not displayed.

Is there any other method to do this?

Sample code is

\begin{tabular}{rrrrrrrrr}
 \hline
  & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 5 & 6 & 7 & 8 \\ 
 \hline
 1 & 12415511.19 & 16701825.51 & 15900722.85 & 15877444.88 & 14925846.69 & 16530962.02 & 18141617.44 & 11153054.43 \\ 
  2 & 17903734.11 & 19022573.06 & 11578499.58 & 15541295.10 & 10988554.35 & 15442721.46 & 12145938.12 & 10013197.04 \\ 
  3 & 11485382.84 & 13734225.54 & 11732796.07 & 10783052.58 & 17693595.62 & 17765344.54 & 19073123.45 & 15398908.36 \\ 
  \hline
 \end{tabular}

Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. –  Martin Scharrer Aug 24 '11 at 20:03
    
What command from the rotating package are you using to rotate your tables? Are you interested in rotating a table or a tabular? –  Werner Aug 24 '11 at 20:14

The tables could bee too big. You could try one of these options:

  • reduce the font size (as you did)
  • reduce the spacing (\tabcolsep, @{})
  • scale the table by \scalebox of the graphicx package
  • shrink it by \resizebox of graphicx
