I wanted to split a narrow, very long table, on one page, then after that page is full, continue the table on the page.

I looked at the solutions posted here and here, but could not get a proper output. I am pulling the data generated from measurements that is saved to a text file, hence the filecontents.

Please help me (if possible) to get the table on multiple columns on one page then continue on the next page.

Here is the code that I have thus far:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[top=3cm,bottom=3cm,left=3.2cm,right=3.2cm,headsep=10pt,a4paper]{geometry}
\usepackage{pgfplotstable, booktabs}
\pgfplotsset{compat=newest}
\usepackage{longtable}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{array}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\fancyhf{}

\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{verylong.txt}

The key points

  • Substitute \usepackage{longtable} with \usepackage{supertabular}
  • Provide the command \twocolumn in your document, to enable two-column composition
  • Before the \pgfplotstabletypeset you should use:
    • \tablefirsthead to define the first header of the table.
    • \tablehead to define the other headers
    • \tabletail to define the footer of your table (not the last one)
    • \tablelasttail to define the last footer
    • \tablecaption to provide the table caption.
  • Remember to switch back to one-column composition by providing \onecolumn at the end of the table.

All of this is documented in supertabulardocumentation

  • thanks for your inputs, but how do you get back out of the \twocolumn mode? My main body of my document is the single column. – Joe Apr 10 '17 at 16:13

    @Joe you should provide \onecolumn after the table. this will start a new page with one single column – Moriambar Apr 10 '17 at 16:39

    @Joe I updated my answer including that remark – Moriambar Apr 10 '17 at 16:41
