Chapter title plus sideways table

Postby engineer » Mon Apr 04, 2011 11:38 pm

I have an appendix chapter, which consists of a single sideways table. Because sideways table always occupies a whole page, I would get two pages, one which only contains the chapter title, the second one contains the actual table.

Is there any way to get them on the same page? The table would be small enough to fit below the title.

Thanks in advance!

The rotating package offers some other mechanisms to turn a table. Some interesting examples and other tips and tricks are compiled in the document »Using imported Graphics in LaTeX and pdfLaTeX«.

I am having an identical problem with this!

EDIT: I managed to solve this by making this the beginning of the table:

  1. \begin{table}[h]\footnotesize

Hi, I have the same problem with my sidewaystable and I have no idea how to correct it. I have 2 appendices including each 1 table. I want to put the table right below the title of the section, but it moves to the next page! Could you please help?

the code:
  1. \usepackage{lscape}
  2. \usepackage{rotating}
  3. \usepackage{adjustbox}
  4. \usepackage{ctable}
  6. \appendix
  7. \section{A}\label
  8. \begin{sidewaystable}[h]\footnotesize
  9. \centering
  10. \caption{A1}
  11. \begin{adjustbox}{width=\textwidth,totalheight=\textheight,keepaspectratio}
  12. \begin{tabular}{p{6cm} l c c c c c c c p{5cm} c p{5cm} c p{3cm} c p{5cm} c}
  13. ...
  14. \end{tabular}
  15. \label{APX1}
  16. \end{adjustbox}
  17. \end{sidewaystable}

I have the same problem. Changing the size of the sideways table does not help. Changing the orientation of the table is not optional - it has be sideways in my dissertation. I would appreciate any suggestions.

I found the solution to this. As long as you put the \begin{sidewaystable} command before the heading's code (e.g. \chapter{XXX}), the heading will be rotated and will show up right on top of your table. I hope this will help for those who have a very wide table and when even the \footnotesize command does not help.
