# supertabular: how to change font size and add caption?

1) How to use small or tiny fonts in supertabular ?

2) How to embed captions in supertabular?

I tried some possible options but they are not working.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{supertabular}
\begin{document}
\begin{supertabular}{ll}
\hline
AA & BB\\
CC & DD\\
\hline
\end{supertabular}
\end{document}

• For "embed captions in supertabular" do you intend to have a caption on everypage or only at the beginning of the supertabular? Moreover, please complete your code snippet to make it compilable. – CarLaTeX Mar 18 '18 at 4:41
• I want caption only at the end of supertable. I have completed the code snippet. – pba Mar 18 '18 at 8:18

supertabular provides a caption mechanism that is quite different from the standard captions. The following three commands are provided: \tablecaption, \topcaption and \bottomcaption that position the caption accordingly.

To position the caption only on the last page under the table, use \bottomcaption as shown in the following MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{supertabular}
\begin{document}
\bottomcaption{some caption}
\begin{supertabular}{ll}
\hline
AA & BB\\
CC & DD\\
\hline
\end{supertabular}
\end{document}


Changing the font size in a supertabular could be done as follows. In this case, \small affects all the whole table, while \tiny only affects the following cell.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{supertabular}
\begin{document}
\bottomcaption{some caption}\small
\begin{supertabular}{ll}
\hline
AA & BB\\
\tiny CC & DD\\
\hline
\end{supertabular}
\end{document}
