I am getting a weird error code:

\expandafter \let \cmrsideswitch \@tempa \fi \fi?

Strange error in my table

The question above had the same code and it was liked to his use of \cmidrule. I am using \midrule but can't seem to figure out how to solve my problem from the question above.

Example shown below:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{longtable}
\usepackage{booktabs}

\setlength{\oddsidemargin}{0in}  % first of the commands relating to page formatting that were not included in the original question
\setlength{\evensidemargin}{0in}
\setlength{\topmargin}{-.5in}  
\setlength{\headsep}{0in}
\setlength{\textwidth}{6.5in}

    unrelated to the error but n=30 should be $n=30$ and the numbers in the columns would be better right aligned or in a decimal aligned column from dcolumn or siunitx packages, so that they were aligned on the decimal point rather than centred which currently pushes entries such as 52.214 out of alignment – David Carlisle Oct 13 '14 at 10:48

Here is how I would typeset the table:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}

\setlength{\oddsidemargin}{0in}
\setlength{\evensidemargin}{0in}

\setlength{\headsep}{0in}
\setlength{\textwidth}{6.5in}
\setlength{\textheight}{8.5in}

\def\refhg{\hangindent=20pt\hangafter=1}
\def\refhgb{\hangindent=10pt\hangafter=1}
\def\refmark{\par\vskip 2mm\noindent\refhg}
\renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{1.5}

\newcommand*\mc[1]{\multicolumn{1}{c}{#1}}
\setlength\tabcolsep{5.69pt} % distance between columns in table

I've changed \tabcolsep to the maximum value (with two decimals precision) without getting any Overfull \hbox warnings.

  • really nice answer!!! – Bazman Oct 13 '14 at 16:05
  • I have to use a special page set up, I didn't post this originally as I didn't think it was relevant. Unfortunately because I am using this special page setup the overfull boxes are still appearing (although there are less of them), I will post up the code showing how the page is set up to the original question. Can you show me how to alter your code so that all the overfull boxes are removed with this alternate page set up? – Bazman Oct 13 '14 at 16:39

Your example is far from minimal, but anyway seems like \midrule looks ahead and sees ( so you need

\midrule\relax

Just as you do to protect cells that start with [ from \\ looking ahead.
