I am generating a long table. I want to put the table note right after the caption. For this purpose, I placed the table note in the caption. Howeer, caption and table note appear in the same line. If i put \\ after the caption both caption and table notes are left aligned. However, only table note should be left aligned and caption should remain centrally aligned. Moreover, I also want to make the line after the p-value disappear in the last row of the table. The MWE is given below:

  • All S columns can have common table-format as defined in \sisetup{...} and also table-space-text-post=***. Two exception of numbers with four decimal digital can protrude in space reserved for stars. Considering this the table can begin with \begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{X@{}*{4}{S}}. With this will table looks more nice (to my opinion, of course). +1 for nice answer. – Zarko Dec 10 '16 at 4:00
  • @Zarko: For table-format, I first used a common value for the four S columns. That produced 3 overfull \hbox, so I opted for two different values. Not sure this was the best choice, though. – Bernard Dec 10 '16 at 10:52
  • @Bernard Thank you. The table format is completely disturbs when I place the actual names of variables in the table that are bit longer but I cannot post variable names here. However, I can make the column width adjusted to text. – Ahmed Arif Dec 10 '16 at 16:11
  • Can't you write variable names over two lines? You also can play with fontsize inside the table, and with the value of \tabcolsep. But of course it all depends on the actual variable names. – Bernard Dec 10 '16 at 16:17
