Can someone let me know the trick to place ltablex table at the top of a page? For instance, for a table env. it is [ht], but the same doesn't work for me using ltablex.

Thanks.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{ltablex}
\usepackage{threeparttable}
\usepackage{booktabs}

\title{Document}
\begin{document}
\maketitle

\begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{Xc}

\multicolumn{2}{l}{\textbf{Panel A1: AAA}} \\\midrule

  • that is not possible, you have to do it manually. A float cannot contain a tabular with a pagebreak. – user2478 Mar 24 '14 at 8:13

I have learnt that afterpage package can be used to ensure that ltablex starts from the next page.

  • In order to make this a usable answer you should add some minimal code to demonstrate that this works in your case. – Andrew Swann Mar 24 '14 at 9:47
