I am new to LaTeX and I've been learning a lot in the last 4 months. Unfortunately I have recently encounter a problem with a large table, that I am trying to fit within a page, and I can't find a solution. It really starts to get frustrating.

The problem is that the table does not fit in the space between the bottom of the title and the bottom of the page.

Even reducing the table size, does not fit in the first page.

It only works if I remove \sidewaystable and only use \adjustbox with rotation to 90, but then the caption does not appear anymore. I included the earlier code commented.

Can someone help me out please.

I would really appreciate your help.

Thank you.

Description.

  • Welcome to TeX.sx! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – Fran May 18 '17 at 4:44
  • You should not use adjustbox for table, as it often makes a table unreadable. The sidewaystable environment creates a newpage, so it can't do what you want. Try with the landscape environment, from the lscape package. – Bernard May 18 '17 at 8:46
  • @Fran The document class is a custom one. It is part of a template that is given by the University. – Focha May 18 '17 at 14:44

This solution uses adjustbox to rotate the tabular as well as shrink it.

The hard part was getting the caption above (rotated) rather then beside the tabular. First I measured the width of the tabular (using lrbox) then created a minipage for the caption (captions like being inside minipages).

Just for fun I reformatted it as two tabulars and shrunk it by changing the font size and the separation between columns.

  • This definitely worked. I don't fully understand what you did, but I'll try to find some documentation on it. Thank you a lot. @John Kormylo – Focha May 18 '17 at 14:50
