I am using longtabu package to span a large table to multiple pages but my problem is that I get the name of this table for all pages that it span in the list of tables. I need to eliminate this and get only the first page of the longtabu referenced in the list of tables. Since I use a template, I can not be sure about the structure of the list of tables and wanted to ask if I can do anything with longtabu package. Thanks in advance.


Instead of the tabu-package use the package longtable and adapt the commands of your long table. The tabu package is unmaintained, see here: https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/121847/4736 .

    Isn't this more a kind of comment than an answer? – Schweinebacke Jun 7 '17 at 14:41
  • @Schweinebacke What do you think is the difference? Many regulars here really have difficulties in understanding that every information that will solve the issue of the OP is an answer, while everything else might be a comment. I'll never understand why folks answer questions via the comment function. Because of this behaviour, we have 10,000 unsanswered questions in the statistics. – Keks Dose Jun 7 '17 at 14:53
  • Because it does not answer how to avoid to get the table entry for all pages instead of only the first one. longtabu inherits the longtable syntax for head and foot definition. You should at least show, how to make a longtable over several pages but with only one entry to the list of tables. But I think, this would be a duplicate. – Schweinebacke Jun 7 '17 at 15:11

    What do you think, why he has entries for every page of the longtabu instead of only the first one? Can you show us, how switching to longtable would change this? – Schweinebacke Jun 7 '17 at 15:15

    @KeksDose: No criticism from me, but we have a lot of questions with unupvoted answers, that is a major portion of that 10000 questions ;-) – user31729 Jun 7 '17 at 15:28
