# How shift a part of the long table to the next page in LATEX?

I have a long table in LATEX, where is not visible completely in a page.

I want to shift a percentage of a table into the next page. e.g., 70% of the table in the current page and remained 30% in the next page.

How is it possible in LATEX?

• What does your table contain? Big paragraph texts? If not, you could use longtable that allows breaking across pages between rows (not mid-row though).

• Thank you friend! How can i shift caption of the table from bottom of the table to over? when I use \caption{} immediately after \begin{longtable}, it gives error. Sep 7, 2013 at 9:48

You can move material to the next page with \pagebreak.

Part on page 1:

Part on page 2:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{longtable}

\begin{document}

\begin{longtable}{lr}
\caption{A sample long table}\\
\hline
Left&Right\\
\hline

Note that you need \\ after the \caption{...} command.
