# Two tabulars in one Table but in different pages

I would like to ask you how could I have in one table two parts (tabulars) BUT in different pages? I tried bigskip or pagebreak but it does't work

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. Especially a screen shot or a sketch would help – user31729 Aug 5 '14 at 12:24
• Have you considered to use a longtable and placing the two tabular environments inside? Should the two parts be side-by-side or stacked? – user31729 Aug 5 '14 at 12:25
• Thank you very much Christian. I appreciate your help. I am newy in LATEX tables. I want the two parts(panels) of the table to be stacked but in different pages. For example in page 1 would be {{Panel A...} and in page 2 would be {Panel B...} of the SAME Table. I used longtable but unfortunately it doesn't work. – Thanos Sak Aug 5 '14 at 12:32
• What is the filler on the second page, above Panel B? – user31729 Aug 5 '14 at 12:33
• You don't have to use longtable. If yu have your tabulars, put them in minipages each and set a caption with \captionof{table}{Your caption}. But i hvae a little trouble imagining the desired output. An MWE (as already requested by @ChristianHupfer Hupfer) might help. – Johannes_B Aug 5 '14 at 12:38

A proposition: Store one tabular (PanelA) in a savebox, call it inside a longtable environment and then introduce a \newpage for the next page, use a \phantom{\usebox{....}} (see code) and then continue with the second panel tabular.

As long as there is no precise information, what fills the place on the second page, I took the spacing produced by PanelA.

\documentclass[paper=a4,12pt]{scrartcl}

\usepackage{longtable}%

\begin{document}

\newsavebox{\PanelABox}

\savebox{\PanelABox}{\begin{tabular}{l}
\textbf{Panel A} \tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\end{tabular}%
}%

\begin{longtable}{c}%
\hline
\tabularnewline
\usebox{\PanelABox} \tabularnewline
\hline
\newpage
\hline
\tabularnewline
\phantom{\usebox{\PanelABox}} \tabularnewline
\hline
\begin{tabular}{l}
\textbf{Panel B}
\end{tabular}%

\end{longtable}

\end{document}


Edit After update of the OP's precise request

\documentclass[paper=a4,12pt]{scrartcl}

\usepackage{longtable}%

\begin{document}

\newsavebox{\PanelABox}

\savebox{\PanelABox}{\begin{tabular}{|l|}
\hline
\textbf{Panel A} \tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\hline
\end{tabular}
}%

\begin{longtable}{|c|}%
\hline
\tabularnewline
\usebox{\PanelABox} \tabularnewline
\hline
\newpage
\hline
\tabularnewline
\begin{tabular}{|l|}
\hline
\textbf{Panel B} \tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\tabularnewline
\hline
\end{tabular} \tabularnewline
\hline
\end{longtable}

\end{document}


• Why so complicated? – Johannes_B Aug 5 '14 at 12:59
• @thanos Do you care if the tables are visible on the same open page couple (panel A left and panel B right)? – Johannes_B Aug 5 '14 at 14:06
• @Johannes_B: I considered your objection also, I believe, that both panels should be on the verso-recto combination, not vice versa, but I do not have added some code to guarantee this ... – user31729 Aug 5 '14 at 17:29
