# Vertical positioning of content on page [closed]

I've got a document I'm going to generate from some input which basically is a tabularx for each page:

\begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{lXlll}
\hline \\[3ex]
\commandOne \\
\hline \\[3ex]
\commandTwo \\
\hline
\end{tabularx}

\clearpage

\begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{lXlll}
\hline \\[3ex]
\commandThree \\
\hline \\[3ex]
\commandFour \\
\hline
\end{tabularx}


where \commandOne...\commandFour generates the table's rows and columns.

The problem is that I want each of the \hlines to be placed exactly at the same place on each page (I know that every \commandN takes less than half a page).

Is there for example a way I can hardcode the position of the \hline and the text following?

Do you have to use tabularx here or would it be enough to determine a with of that column and then you could a l column with a minipage whre you specified both the width and vertical extent. –  David Carlisle Mar 21 '12 at 21:53
@Paul It maybe better not to use a tabular at all, can you post a sample output somewhere? –  Yiannis Lazarides Mar 21 '12 at 22:26
Also would be useful to understand how you determine/specify where the \hline is to go. –  Peter Grill Mar 22 '12 at 0:08
