I am getting a really strange error while using longtable.

When I run the following code in a standalone file, I get a neat table with perfect alignment (see picture).

nice table

But when I run the exact same code in the actual file where I want it to be placed, it gives me a strange-looking table with the last column runnning into the right margin (see picture). I am using longtable and geometry packages in the preamble. However, I am writing a dissertation, and am using a LaTeX template designed for my institute. Could that be causing a problem? Please suggest a workaround, if any. Thank you!

not so nice table

    Apparently your table is simply wider than the available space. For some general advice on how to make sure a table fits onto a page, you might want to take a look at the following question and its answer: My table doesn't fit; what are my options?

  • The issue is, it works fine in one file but not in the other. So I doubt it is a table width problem. Have edited the question with a picture of the correct table. I tried shrinking the table using scalebox as well but it didn't work.

  • Using scalebox on a table is never a good ide since this method will inevitably lead to inconsistent font sizes throughout the document, so better aviod scaling tables.

  • Different documents can use different fonts, font sizes margins,... and other settings, all of which can have an influence on a table and might lead to a table that fits on the page in one document and overflows into the margin in another document.

  • Yes, it appears to be a problem due to the document class. Once I change it, the table fits properly again. But I can't use article class and need to use the template for the thesis. Can I try something different that might work? Using a table and tabular also doesn't give a very nice table.

Answering your specific question I will show two ways to control the wideness of the table with minimum changes in your code.

(Assuming you are not allowed to use the geometry package in your document class, but you are allowed to use the margins with wide tables or figures. Otherwise other approaches will be needed to be considered, maybe landscape.)

  1. Use the package array and define a new type of column that will be applied to the first column, to limit its width. Long lines will be separated into lines by the TeX paragraph algorithm.

  2. Use the makecell package and make the cuts yourself (with the command \thead{<content>} and using \\ inside) in the places that you consider most grammatically correct.

I added the package showframe to show the text area and the margins

First choice: using array (one line changed in the table)

  • Your answer worked very well with some tweaks. Thanks a lot for your effort!

I would redesign your table as follows:

  • for the first column would use p{...} column type and insert text in cels in \multirow cells
  • for columns with numbers would use S column type defined in the siunitx package
  • for table notes would use tablenotes defined in threetablex package:
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{geometry}
\usepackage{booktabs, makecell, multirow, longtable}
\usepackage[referable]{threeparttablex}
\NewExpandableDocumentCommand\mcc{O{1}m}
    {\multicolumn{#1}{c}{#2}}
\NewExpandableDocumentCommand\mcr{O{1}m}
    {\multicolumn{#1}{r}{#2}}
\NewExpandableDocumentCommand\mrc{O{2}m}
    {\multirow[t]{#1}{=}{#2}}
\usepackage{siunitx}
