  • I haven't solved your problem yet, but I can recommend the longtable and tabu (longtabu environment) packages. They are capable of handling multipage tables.

  • Thank you for your answer. The cals are capable of handling multipage tables, too. The problem occurs when there is a cals table in header and I merge fields vertically. If I merge fields horizontally, there is no problem. I don't know what couses this problem: whether the cals or the fancyhdr. Commented Mar 24, 2014 at 19:54
  • Just an idea for workaround: try to put longtable/tabu table in the header instead of the actual one and let the table in body stays typeset by the cals package. The tables probably use different variables and there shall be no inference.

One idea for workaround: let the other table be typeset by non-cals package. I enclose an example using the basic tabular environment and a preview of those two pages. Then the different dimensions/definitions should not interfere.
