# Numbered two-column table in apa6 in a portrait page

I'm writing a paper using apa6 class and I'd like to have a table as wide as two columns in portrait mode. But I also want this table to be numerated. I've found this in the apa6 manual:

"When an image or table is too wide for a single column, use a double-column float, noted with an asterisk after the float environment designation (see the LaTeX book)"

So I did this:

\documentclass[jou,draftfirst,floatsintext]{apa6}
\begin{document}
\begin{table*}
\begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|c|c|}
\hline
Blah & Blah Blah & Blah   & Blah & Blah\\
\hline
Blah & Some more text and more Blah Blah  & Blah  & Blah & Blah\\
Blah & Blah Blah BlahBlahBlahBlah  & Blah  & Blah & Blah\\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\vspace*{2em}
\begin{tablenotes}[para,flushleft]
{\small
\textit{Note.}Some notes.
}
\end{tablenotes}
\end{table*}
\end{document}


But then my table doesn't have "Table number" on its top. Any ideas?

• Welcome to TeX.SX. Please provide a full compilable code. With \documentclass{} and so on (but as short as possible). Are you talkin about capitons? You should insert a \caption{Table number} then. – LaRiFaRi Nov 22 '13 at 15:50
• Well, I feel stupid, it was only because of \caption{} – Bruno Nov 22 '13 at 16:11
• It seems that with less than 10 reputation I can't answer my own question for 8 hours after asking (and "solve" it). If @LaRiFaRi or someone else wants to answer, I'll solve the question sooner... – Bruno Nov 22 '13 at 16:39

You forgot to use the caption command. You can use the following MWE:

\documentclass[%
,jou
,draftfirst
,floatsintext
]{apa6}
\usepackage{booktabs}

\begin{document}
\begin{table*}
\begin{threeparttable}
\caption{Caption}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\begin{tabular}{lllll}
\toprule
Blah & Blah Blah & Blah & Blah & Blah\\
\midrule
Blah & Some more text and more Blah Blah  & Blah  & Blah & Blah\\
Blah & Blah Blah BlahBlahBlahBlah  & Blah  & Blah & Blah\\
\bottomrule
\end{tabular}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\begin{tablenotes}[para,flushleft]
\small
\item \textit{Notes:} Some notes.
\end{tablenotes}
\end{threeparttable}
\end{table*}
\end{document}

• you may put your \vspace over the note again. Don't know, what's going wrong there. Maybe I will do some research tomorrow. – LaRiFaRi Nov 23 '13 at 1:23
