# Keeping things in place

Hi guys I have a very stupid question. I call it stupid because it's probably something really easy to fix but since I am a noob I can't do it. I tried asking the question on a comment section of another question I posted but somehow he couldn't understand me. So I made a new question with visual aids because visual aids are always easy to understand. Ok so here is the situation.

Ok here is the first page. As you can see there is almost half a page of gap here. But I have mentioned that I will be displaying information in the following pages. Btw Grey represents used up space on the page and white represents empty space.

Ok so here are pages 2,3,4. These pages represent tables. They are horizontal tables as in landscape so moving a part of the table to the page before is not an option. I am using the rotating package and sideway environment for this. Now here is where the problem comes.

On page 3 I want my results to start as shown in the image. But this entire result section moves up, goes back to the first page, to fit in the box show as "EMPTY BLANK SPACE". Now obviously that is stupid because I have a heading, important tables, then a line and then a new heading talking about results. Can I make this all stay the way I want it? Is there a command where I can put empty spaces that don't show up on page to fill that gap? I just can't use \\ repeatedly since my LaTeX program gives me an error that there is no line there to skip. Please help. Thanks in advance.

• Put \clearpage before the result section. – Johannes_B Jan 24 '16 at 9:35
• that sort of worked but now there is a blank page between the result section and where the table ends. how do get rid of the blank page – Bakhtawar Khattak Jan 24 '16 at 9:39
• It should be \end{sidewaystable}\clearpage <Your results> Nothin more inbetween. – Johannes_B Jan 24 '16 at 9:44
• here is what I am doing but there is still a blank page between i65.tinypic.com/2889izr.jpg – Bakhtawar Khattak Jan 24 '16 at 9:54
• Bakhtawar, showing me images like this is asking a mechanic to fix the car just by showing him a picture of the car. Really helpful would be a minimal working example that let's us reproduce your case. Are there any errors or warnings? What happens if you remove the last column of the table? I think the table might just be too big for one page. – Johannes_B Jan 24 '16 at 10:00

Without a MWE answering your question is like looking into a dirty crystal ball, so if this is not what you want, please send window cleaner...
