I have a longtable and it doesn't fit the page size. How to fix it?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[russian]{babel}  % Включаем пакет для поддержки русского
\usepackage{multirow,tabularx}
\usepackage{tabu}
\usepackage{longtable}
\usepackage[a4paper, portrait, margin=1in, hmargin=2cm, top=4cm, bottom=4cm, headheight=3cm, footskip=2.5cm]{geometry}

    \begin{document}

\begin{longtable}{|l|l|l|l|l|l|}
%\begin{longtable}{@{\extracolsep{\fill}}|l|l|l|l|l|l|@{}}
\hline
№& Описание отклонения & Департамент & Идентифицированный риск & \multicolumn{2}{l|}{Не идентифицированный риск 1} \\
\hline
1   & ОТКЛОНЕНИЕ 1   & Департамент 1  & Риск 1  & Описание не идентифицированного риска & НИ Риск  \\
\cline{5-6}
        &           &           &           & Объект / процесс, в которос появился этот риск & Объект 1 \\
\hline        
\end{longtable}

\end{document}

I also tryed to use this code from the documentation but it still results in a table that is wider than the text width:

\setlength\LTleft{0pt}
\setlength\LTright{0pt}
\begin{longtable}{@{\extracolsep{\fill}}|l|l|l|l|l|l|@{}}

  • Apparently your columns are too wide because they do not wrap? ;-)

  • @ChristianHupfer How to wrap text in the columns?

  • I already suggested to the \newcolumntype command from the array package (and reading it's documenation) once (as a comment to another question where this wrapping was missing too) ;-)

  • @ChristianHupfer I guess it's a high time to read it. :-)

You can specify the size of a column by using p<Xcm>

\begin{longtable}{|p<1cm>|p<3cm>|p<3cm>|p<3cm>|p<3cm>|p<3cm>|}

Package ltablex redefines the environment tabularx that it behaves like a longtable: pagebreaks are possible and header definitions too.

The \hspace{0pt} are needed for pdflatex and xelatex: TeX doesn't hyphenate the first word in a paragraph. However, LuaTeX does ...

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{libertine}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[russian]{babel}  % Включаем пакет для поддержки русского
\usepackage{ltablex}
\usepackage[a4paper, portrait, margin=1in, hmargin=2cm, top=4cm, bottom=4cm, 
headheight=3cm, footskip=2.5cm]{geometry}

\begin{document}

\noindent
\begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{|l|>{\hspace{0pt}}p{2.2cm}|l|>{\hspace{0pt}}p{2cm}|X|l|}\hline
№& Описание отклонения & Департамент & Идентифицированный риск & \multicolumn{2}{l|}{Не 
идентифицированный риск 1} \\\hline
1   & ОТКЛОНЕНИЕ 1   & Департамент 1  & Риск 1  & Описание не идентифицированного риска & 
НИ Риск  \\\cline{5-6}
&           &           &           & Объект / процесс, в которос появился этот риск & 
Объект 1 \\\hline        
\end{tabularx}

\end{document}

  • But how to make it work with longtable? Because actually this table will be for 2-3 pages, and tabularx would be not very good for this.

    It is a longtable! Package ltablex is a combination of longtable and tabularx
