I have a wide table in my two-column paper. When I use \begin{table*} instead of \begin{table}, although the table becomes on wide, but it goes to the next page and I have limit on the number of pages. Is is possible to force my table to be on the same page it is referred? I read How to force a figure and a table to stay on the same page in LaTeX? and Get a table and figure on the same page with captions & labels and searched a lot but I couldn't find the answer.


if for your table is enough space after the point of its insertion, the package stfloats can help you.


table* always goes, at the earliest, on the next page, simply add it to the source on the page earlier than you want it to appear.
