I have a table such that;

\documentclass{article}
\documentclass[a4paper,onesided,12pt]{report}
\usepackage{array,longtable}
\renewcommand*{\arraystretch}{1.5}

\begin{document}
    \begin{center}
\begin{table}[H]
\caption{Çınar's emergent codes and corresponding themes}
\begin{tabular}{|m{9cm}|m{5cm}| }
\hline\multicolumn{1}{|c|}{RELEVANT CODES} & \multicolumn{1}{|c|}{THEME} \\

\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}
\end{center}      
\end{document}

I need to divide them into two parts since the table contains several rows and they did not fit in one page.

    You might be interested in the longtable environment from the eponymous package that allows tables to use several pages. – leandriis Jun 15 '18 at 19:56
  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem. – dexteritas Jun 15 '18 at 19:57
  • The text is very long. I tried to summarize it. – Zeynep P Jun 15 '18 at 20:15
  • @leandriis: I think it's the environment that's eponymous of the package. – Bernard Jun 15 '18 at 20:25

    An addditional comment/observation: Don't use "dumb quotes" , as in "y" -- the typeset output will be wrong. Instead, do use "smart" quotes, e.g., ``y''. – Mico Jun 16 '18 at 6:23

In the following example, I have used the longtable environment in order to allow the table to be split onto several pages if it is too long to fit onto a single page. I have also made sure that the width of the table does not exceed the textwidth. I have therefor calculated the width of the second column relative to the current textwidth. Additionally, I have corrected the usage of \multirow in order to vertically align the text in the second column with respect to the corresponding entries in the first column. Lastly, I removed all vertical lines and replaced the horizontal lines with the rules from the booktabs package. (In order to make the table too long for one page, I have repeated some contents)
