# Include a PDF (contain a table) and get an entry of it into the list of tables

How to include a PDF in a document and getting an entry of it into the list of tables? I have three doc (pdf) contain tables I would like to put them on latex (include them as an only table and put caption "summary table" just one caption at the end, how to do this please and how to add the title of my table (page as well) on my list of tables

\includegraphics{tableofcontentmanually/file1.pdf}
\includegraphics{tableofcontentmanually/file2.pdf}
\includegraphics{tableofcontentmanually/file3.pdf}


here is my tables on pdfs :) thank you for your time and consideration

Assuming the tables in the pdf are already cropped to the correct size:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}

\begin{document}

\listoftables

\begin{table}
\includegraphics[scale=1]{example-image}
\caption{test}
\end{table}

\end{document}


• thank you for your time and consideration :) it works well just how to minimize the space between the title and the the pdf I have imported ( the table !) and thank you again dear samcarter – mirette Jul 14 '17 at 20:03
• @mirette As a quick hack you could try \vspace*{-0.5cm}, but this is just a guess. If you want an helpful answer, we would need a MWE and see how your table looks like, for example is the pdf cropped exactly to the table or is there whitespace around ... – user36296 Jul 14 '17 at 20:06

With pdfpages and its addtolist option, say addtolist={1,table,My wonderful table,table::wonderfultable} in order to add the first page of a .pdf file to the list of tables, give it the caption My wonderful table and the label table::wonderfultable which works with \ref as well then.

This works for any float like figure etc.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{pdfpages}
\begin{document}

\listoftables

See \ref{table::wonderfultable}

\end{document}


The 7.pdf file is generated from

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{blindtext}

\begin{document}
\section{Beginning \jobname}
\blindtext[50]
\end{document}

• dear Christian excuse me what could be the reason I have not get the title of the table ( caption in the bottom, is it with no caption !! ) and thank you for your essay am really very gratefull :) – mirette Jul 14 '17 at 20:02
• @mirette: Sorry, I don't understand. The included table pdf. does not have a caption by using \includepdf. The caption is the title in the List of Tables. – user31729 Jul 14 '17 at 20:21
