I've a table too large for the regular width page. Using the package rotating, I was able to set it in landscape orientation. Using the package is not the problem, the problem is that I'm using a FANCY header in the entire document and actually I'm having and undesired overlapping between the header and the table, as the photo shows.

I've tried the following two options:

  1. Using the \thispagestyle{empty} command in order to remove the header just in that page. The problem is that I don't know how to fix the page to be modified, so I get a blank style page different to the one I need to blank.
  2. I tried to use the adjustbox package, but as far as I know, the package works for normal orientation, right?
  • You can play with \tabcolsep, which is 6pt by default. Could you post a minimal example? – Bernard Feb 22 '15 at 2:35

Package fancyhdr offers you the \iffloatpage command to specify different settings for headers/footers in float only pages (as the ones produced when using sidewaystable); the syntax is

\iffloatpage{<value for float only pages>}{<value other pages>}

A complete example, which you can easily adapt to your settings, in which I suppressed the header and the headrule for float only pages:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{rotating}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\pagestyle{fancy}
\fancyhf{}
\fancyhead[C]{\iffloatpage{}{\leftmark}}
\renewcommand\headrulewidth{\iffloatpage{0pt}{0.4pt}}

\begin{document}

\section{Test section one}
\lipsum[1-2]
\begin{sidewaystable}
\begin{tabular}{@{}p{\textwidth}@{}}
\lipsum[2]
\end{tabular}
\caption{test rotated table}
\end{sidewaystable}
\lipsum[1-6]

\end{document}

The output:
