# Space between sectioning header and tabular environment

I have this situation on Latex. How can I eliminate this space between the \section{PESTA} and the tabular?

\subsection{PEST+A}
\begin{tabular}{ |p{5cm}|p{10cm}|  }
\hline
\multicolumn{2}{|c|}{PEST+A} \\
\hline
...


How can I solve this?

• Please post fully working examples of your code. Your problem is not reproducible - there's no gap over here. Maybe it's because of a missing package? Maybe you want to try to wrap the tabular environment into a table environment and then force it to the position with \begin{table}[H]. – Octopus Feb 4 '16 at 15:26
• What happens if you insert the instruction \raggedbottom immediately before \begin{document}? – Mico Feb 4 '16 at 15:57
• What follows this table? I'm guessing another table that is fairly large. – Werner Feb 4 '16 at 16:37
• @Mico your solution solves the problem :) Thanks!! Put in the answer ;) – PRVS Feb 5 '16 at 10:48
• @PRVS - Glad to know that my suggestion/guess was on target. Per your request, I've re-posted it as answer. – Mico Feb 5 '16 at 10:51

It looks like your document uses the \flushbottom setting. To change this, insert the instruction
\raggedbottom

immediately before \begin{document}.
