I would like to have your assistance to fit a long table into multiple horizontal pages. I really appreciate your time and help. Because of the word limits, I could not post the whole of my table on here. Here is the code:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{longtable}
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}
\usepackage{rotating}
\usepackage{multirow}

\begin{document}
\begin{sidewaystable}
%\centering
\caption{Table 3 (a). Courier....}
\label{my-label}
\scriptsize

\begin{longtable}{|l|l|l|l|l|l|l|}
    \hline
    \multicolumn{1}{|c|}{\multirow{2}{*}{\textbf{Variables}}}                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           & \multicolumn{1}{c|}{\multirow{2}{*}{\textbf{Unit}}}                                       & \multicolumn{1}{c|}{\multirow{2}{*}{\textbf{\begin{tabular}[c]{@{}c@{}}Min/ Max or \\ Values*\end{tabular}}}}      & \multicolumn{4}{c|}{\textbf{Percentages or Distribution*}}                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         \\ \cline{4-7}

  • sidewaystable is a one-page environment. You can can't put a multipage longtable in it. Oct 2, 2017 at 21:27
  • you should use lanscape enviroment from lscape or pdflscape.

i suspect that you like to achieve something like this:

enter image description here

but i'm not sure. ass I mentioned in comment, use of landscape environment enables use longtable over more pages.

i must confess that i was lost in your table code. i try to clean up it, but probably in this effort introduce some errors in table content. i did the following:

  • add packages pdflcscape, makecell and siunitx
  • with \makecell macro i replace all your nested tables
  • with siunitx i tray to use for constructs as isOthers\textasciicircum 8, where i didn't figured out, what this circle means. so left them as you use in your *mwe*, but afer numbers i replace them with for example\SI{2.00}{\degree}`
  • in table i add many missing ampersands ...

code can be further improved if the context of table is known (for example, instead of l tape would be better to use p{...} type of columns or even use tabularx and ltablex package ...
