# How to rotate landscape table page in PDF?

Currently I am using

\usepackage{rotating}

\begin{sidewaystable}
\begin{tabular}...\end{tabular}
\end{sidewaystable}


to typeset landscape tables, which works great.

But I want to rotate that page in the resulting pdf (generated by pdflatex) for more convenient screen reading.

I found the landscape environment which is also mentioned in another question. I tried it like this:

\usepackage{pdflscape}

\begin{landscape}
\begin{table}
\begin{tabular}...\end{tabular}
\end{table}
\end{landscape}


This kind of works, except the original table does not fit anymore on the page, i.e. sidewaystable makes better use of the available space.

Thus my question: Is it somehow possible to just use sidewaystable and instruct pdflatex to rotate it?

Or instruct pdflatex to mark it as rotated such that the PDF viewer knows what to do?

The question is hard to answer without a concrete example of a table that fits with sidewaystable but not with pdflscape. – frabjous Oct 8 '10 at 21:37
Hi, I'm new here and I'm spanish, so please excuse my english. I'm using landscape, but i can't quit the blank page before all \begin{landscape}, instead of that, landscape is great, have you resolved that problem? I don't know if I should ask this ina new question =S – Daniteba Jul 18 '12 at 17:45
@Daniteba, no, I did not resolve the problem. Since the question is not really about blank page issues just go ahead and ask a new question - of course, you can link this question because it is related. – maxschlepzig Jul 22 '12 at 8:29
