In my letter I would like that the table fills the space all the way to the footer or at least the same length as all the following pages. When I add \setlength{\footskip}{0mm} it does this on the first page, but not on all the following pages. Also, I 'd like to have my table a little bit wider. I can do so by adding DIV=14 to the options of scrlttr2, but then the text body collides with the header and the footer on the second page and following. So how can should I set the text body wider to fit my table?

Edit: seems that my question is similar to this one. I just added the line \setlength{\footskip}{0mm}, '\setlength{\textheight}{22cm' an enlargefirstpage=true in the scrlttr2 options. It does the trick for the empty space on the bottom pages before the footer.

Here is my document:

  • I'm not sure: do you ask how to give a tabular a fixed height or a fixed width? If fixed height, should row height be de- or increased?

  • My primary question is about the text body. I can completely remove the table and replace it with a \blindtext. It is just my table takes the same space a text would do.

Use firstfoot=false and add the layer with the footer to @everystyle@:
