I am trying to use a tabular environment that has the features of tabulary but allows for multiple page tables (this 'catch-all' solution is necessary as by latex code automatically generated so a single "table environment" combining the features of these packages is ideal).

At present the table numberings are incorrect - each table increments the numbering by two, so the e.g. the first two tables are numbered 0.1 and 0.3 (not 0.2!).

I've tried to provide a minimal example below, which demonstrates the column width adjustment (in table 1) and multi page feature (in table 2), whilst showing the numbering issue. This is about as minimal a reproducible example as I can make.

For reference, the ltabulary environment was taken from the following sources:

Code:

\documentclass[oneside]{scrbook}

\usepackage{longtable}
\usepackage{tabulary}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage[referable]{threeparttablex}
\usepackage{caption}

Just use longtable's method for handling the captions and it will work fine:
