comment Problem with vspace around table environment
Thank you for your help, it's fixed now. Adding \clearpage and then putting \vspace*{-2.5cm} after \begin{center} worked perfectly. If you look at my original code the \vspace*{-2.5cm} was before the \begin{center} which was not working.

comment Problem with vspace around table environment
Would I not have to post a table large than a page to provide a MWE? I think if I can simply alter the top margin for the second table page then it should work. Yes I have, that's what's in my code at the moment.

Thanks for your reply. I've tried using \clearpage, but it seems to be inserting a blank page and the \vspace is still being ignored.

comment Problem with vspace around table environment
@egreg yeah I realise it's probably not the best way of doing what I wanted to do, but it seemed to be the easiest. The table doesn't fit within the margins of the page, so I was raising it into the top margin. Any better ways of doing this?

@egreg I see. So the tabular environment is not a floating object and this is why the vspace no longer works?

@egreg thanks, but can you explain why? Also, this seems to have centered the table vertically now.
