I need a table to spam in several pages but some of its cells contains a lot of text, so even with long table some text is lost into endpage oblivion. I know that is not possible to split table cells as Latex treats them as box, but I would appreciate some help here. MWE as follows.

The ltxtable setup, courtesy of Mico at How to set the width of column in longtable method?:

Note: With font size \tiny the table content is difficult to read. I would reconsider if all information in table are necessary. Foe example, "{Brazilian\ Latitude\ Comprised" and "Brazilian\ Longitude\ Comprised" can be with "Study\ locality" in separate table. This will enable to use bigger font size (at least \footnotesize)

  • This worked like a charm, thanks a lot. I was wondering about the tiny fonts too, but this is not my work, and the author insistis on a small fonts. – Rafael dos Santos Dantas Jul 23 at 23:00
