I am still struggling with my tables. My new problem is that I have a long table that should be split on more pages. I am trying to use the package longtable. The code I wrote so far is:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{longtable}
\usepackage{rotating}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage[labelfont=bf]{caption}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{caption, booktabs, makecell, siunitx}
\usepackage{eqparbox}
\pagenumbering{gobble}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage[referable,para]{threeparttablex}
\usepackage[scale=.75]{geometry}
\captionsetup{font=bf}
\setlength{\textheight}{23.0cm}
\sisetup{group-separator={,}, table-format=1.3, table-space-text-post=***, table-number-alignment =center}
\begin{document}
\begin{longtable}{l*{8}{c}}
\def\sym#1{\ifmmode^{#1}\else\(^{#1}\)\fi}
\begin{threeparttable}
\caption{Baseline model \label{table3}}
\centering\small

\endfirsthead
\multicolumn{9}{l}

\end{document}

However I receive the following error message

tab4_R.tex
20
Misplaced \noalign.
\caption ->\noalign 
                    \bgroup \@ifnextchar [{\egroup \LT@c@ption \@firstofone ...
l.20 \caption
             {Baseline model \label{table3}}

I cannot understand what is going wrong. Can anyone help me with this?

  • I get numerous errors with this. You might get better results from posting a working example. Stripping it down to a MWE is of course the best.

  • 4
    \end{table} \end{threeparttable} \end{longtable} you can not have either table or threeparttable inside longtable have you seen any documentation suggesting that should work? If so please give a link and we'll try to get the author to fix it. Dec 30, 2015 at 13:35
  • @DavidCarlisle yes you are right. \end{table} should not be there. Anyway even if I drop it, I still cannot have a longtable.

Use only environment longtable it can have footnotes, if really needed. And it can be inside \begin{landscape} ... \end{landscape} for very wide tabulars. Needs package pdflscape.
