# Blank page after chapter title when table is used

I am having a problem with a blank page appearing after the title page whenever only a table is in the chapter. So the chapter is 2 pages, the first is blank and the other is where the table is. Any suggestions?

\chapter*{List of A}

\begin{table*}[H]
\centering
\begin{tabular}{c c c c}

\textbf{XXX} &  XXX  \\
\textbf{XXX} &  XXX \\

\end{tabular}
\end{table*}

• Please complete your code in order to make it compilable for us. Why do you use table* with that asterisk? Do you need that [H] specifier? Always recommended to start without it. If you do not want the table to float somewhere, just put it in a \begin{center}\end{center} instead of the table*. You are having 4 columns but use just two. Sep 11 '15 at 8:23

A table* double column float always goes to the next page. If you want a one column appendix in an otherwise two column document use

\onecolumn
\chapter*{List of A}

Also: you can not have two-column floats (table*) with H or h
