I am trying to make a table with three subtables side by side using the threeparttable environment within a table environment since I would like to have build in table notes and I need a resizebox. However the table notes are cutoff in the middle of the table. Is there a way to use threeparttable and create two, three or more subtables and appropriate table notes without manually creating text under a table? Here is my code:

Edit:

thanks a lot for the suggestions. I managed to use the example 1 from leandriis after making some minor changes since I am using kpfonts which is a bit smaller.

Here are some of my answers:

What I was trying to achieve is having three tables next to each other and having one caption and the same table notes. Since I am producing results from stata I wanted to have a somewhat automated process for creating a table. I wanted to use a threeparttable because I thought it is the easiest and fastest way to have a structured table with build in table notes in the right format etc and not having to try out different font sizes and position of text under the table. And since it was too big for the page I used resizebox.

When is a good situation to use threeparttable? And what are \tnote directives?

    Could you please make your code compiable by adding the documentclass as well as the relevant packages?

    You wrote, "I need a resizebox". Why? For that matter, why do you need to use a threeparttable environment? Your code contains no \tnote directives, while the only valid reason for using a tablenotes environment is to provide the footnote material to go with the \tnote markers.

    I'd definitely recommend to not use resizebox on your tabulars. This will give you a font size that is even smaller than tiny in your case.

Here are five different versions of your table:

In the first version of the table, I have just removed the threeparttable environment. This causes the tablenotes to spread across the width of all three tabulars. However, I'd not recommend this solution as it keeps the resizebox and gives you, as you can see from the following screenshot, inconsistent and illegibly small font sizes:

enter image description here


In the second example, I have removed the resizebox and manually decreased to font size to tiny. In order to make the tables narrower, I have also decreased the horizontal white space between adjacent columns. As you can see from the following screenshot, the font is a bit larger than in the first example, however, still too small (as least in my opinion):

enter image description here


To be able to use a larger font, I have therefore allowed a linebreak between the second and third table in the third example. The tablenotes are still as wide as the combined width of the first two tables:

enter image description here


Here is a slightly different variant that places the tablenotes next to the third table. In this example, I have also replaced your \hline commands and empty rows with the rules from the booktabs package:

enter image description here


Lastly, your table could also fit into a portrait page as shown in the following screenshot. Here I have used a scriptsize font as well as the booktabs package:

    If you remove the threeparttable "wrapper" (which I also recommend), you might as well also remove the tablenotes wrapper (and its no-longer-needed \item directives).

  • @Mico: You are definitely right with your comment about the tablenotes. I will incorporate it in my answer later today.

A variant where the first column of tables is only at the first table (separated by @{\quad} with own horizontal rules (\cmidrule(r){1-1}). For other columns in tables are used S column types. Similarly as @Mico I don't see reasonable reason why you should use ˙threeparttable˙:

As far as I can tell, you're not using the machinery of the threeparttable package appropriately. For sure, when using the threeparttable package, the tablenotes environment should be placed inside, rather than outside, the threeparttable environment. No exceptions.

A more fundamental issue is, why use a threeparttable environment in the first place for the material at hand? None of the tabular environments contain any \tnote directives. If there are no table notes to process, why set up tablenotes and threeparttable environments?

Here are some suggestions.

  • Drop the threeparttable-related code entirely, and concentrate on making the three tabular environments more readable. And whatever else you do: Don't use a \resizebox directive to willy-nilly shoehorn the material into the width of the (rotated) text block.

  • Instead, focus on improving the overall organization or exposition of the material. Usual visual cues to your advantage. In the following example, I've chosen to use three subtable environments, one per tabular environment, to give structure to the material.

  • The three tables shown below employ three different "looks". I prefer the ones on the left and right, but you may prefer look of the one in the center. Note that even the table in center is much streamlined compared with what's done in your code.

  • The code also uses tabular* instead of tabular environments, to help remove the guesswork about how wide the intercolumn whitespaces should be.

  • If the main font size of your document is 12pt, you should change \small to \footnotesize in the code below.

\begin{table}
\small  % use '\footnotesize' if document font size is 12pt
\setlength\tabcolsep{0pt} % let LaTeX figure out intercol. whitespace
