Formatting Latex Table

I have created a table in latex. However, the table is covering the entire page, and I cannot see some of the columns. It would be great if someone can help me format the table. Thanks!

• As posted, your code won't compile. Something lost in the formatting, perhaps? – cfr May 23 '16 at 0:21
• Off-topic: your code is far from minimal. In any case, you should prune your preamble for your original document. You are using packages you almost certainly don't need, including some long obsolete, and loading them in the wrong order etc. – cfr May 23 '16 at 0:23

A few notes:

• the preamble is rather problematic: it includes too much which is too ancient and too disordered e.g. hyperref needs to be loaded late - cleverref must come later, but almost everything else should come earlier; epsfig is obsolete; etc.

• tabularx requires one or more X columns in some guise or other.

The table doesn't fit the page.

The first thing to ask is whether the data can be summarised more concisely or split more perspicuously. This is a content question only you (or somebody in your field) can answer. However, I think it is surely unnecessary to tell readers that Feb'07 gives a month/year. I'm not a specialist in your area, but even I know that much ;).

If that strategy isn't sufficient, the second thing is to consider the format. Simply shrinking the table to the page size is unwise. Mismatched font sizes are ugly and distracting. Moreover, in this case, the approach will render the table unreadable.

The following solution does a few things:

• rotates the table, so that the height of the paper is available for the width of the table;

• reduces visual clutter by implementing booktabs's guidelines more consistently (don't use \hline, don't use double rules, use rules which add sufficient space rather than empty rows etc.);

• uses longtable and l column specifiers as the p{}s were not really doing much and no X columns were used anyway;

• applies \small to the entire table since it is simply not ever going to fit otherwise unless the paper size is increased.

Depending on the variant of latex you use (latex, pdflatex, xelatex, etc.), the canonical way is to rotate the table, and if necessary to minimize it.

You might need \usepackage{graphicx} rather than \usepackage{graphics}

\resizebox{\textwidth}{!}{
\begin{tabularx}
…
\end{tabularx}}


Might work.

• 'Canonical'? Certainly not in the sense of 'recommended' ;). – cfr May 22 '16 at 22:41
• In this case, this suggestion will fail badly as you cannot box the content in order to resize it. – cfr May 23 '16 at 1:06
• Save the table ro an \sbox. Then rotate and rescale rhe \sbox. Or an lrbox. This should complete the canonicality of the answer. – roffe May 23 '16 at 6:46
• In the sense that you can box the contents of a novel (sans chapter breaks) and make it fit, sure, this is always an option. But that is hardly useful! The original table allows page breaks. A reasonable solution needs to allow them, too. – cfr May 23 '16 at 20:21
