this is my latex, the columns always see to go over the page width. I know I set width using p instead of l. However, using p, the tables disappears to the next page where it is portrait mode.

  • Please mak e acomplete compilable minimal working example (MWE) by adding the documentclass and the relevant packages. Regarding your issue: you might be interested in the tabularx package. – leandriis Mar 20 at 14:39
  • the last change the l to >{\raggedright\arraybackslash}p{...} with ... chosen so the table is not too wide, – David Carlisle Mar 20 at 14:43
  • Apart from that, why do you use captionof in combination with a table and landscape? – leandriis Mar 20 at 14:44

Here is a version using tabularx to allow the table to be as wide as the textwidth. I have also removed the table environment as it is not needed here:

This last example contains some suggestions on how you could increase the readability of your table (I have removed the underline commands, added horizontal ruleds from the booktabs package as well as some more horizontal and vertical space between the columns and rows. Lastly, I have also used some abbreviations in order to save some space in the table)
