Latex tables in ladscape or portarait format has been widly discussed here. I have almost tried all solutions presented here. However, I still face one issues. I have a table with more than 40 rows (40 is minimum) in it. I have two choices

1) to display whole table vertically on multiple pages or

2) make a landscape and move tables in parts horizontally along multiple pages.

I have tried all solutions such as minipage, longtable (it is suitable for single column articles not double), landscape,sidewaystables, rotatebox,'afterpage' etc. Here is one of the MWE that i have tried

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper,twocolumn]{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{ltablex}
\begin{document}
\lipsum[1-2]
\begin{table}
 \rotatebox{90}{
\begin{minipage}{\textheight}
 %\begin{table}
 \centering
 \caption{Caption}
 \label{my-label}
 \begin{tabular}{p{4cm}p{3cm}p{3cm}lp{6cm}}

  • I have edited my question. Added a picture for better understanding. As I said I have tried all solutions but didn't get what is desireable. And i need a solution for double column article as well. – Skipper07 Nov 10 '15 at 9:15
  • @Skipper07 surely you don't want a table that wide in a single column of a 2-col page? Just put \onecolumn before the table – David Carlisle Nov 10 '15 at 10:59
  • @Skipper07 made it a 2-col example document – David Carlisle Nov 10 '15 at 11:03
  • I get following error when I use LongTable in my article. Longtable is used for one column articles, not two. This solution will work but not a precise one. `! Package longtable Error: longtable not in 1-column mode.' – Skipper07 Nov 10 '15 at 12:20
  • You can use \onecolumn as above to avoid that error, – David Carlisle Nov 10 '15 at 12:21
