Long table in two-column Environment

Postby msbstar » Mon Feb 04, 2013 11:57 am

Hi everybody,

I have a list of numbers as follows:
  1. 1.656036 & CIV & 10.6$\pm$0.5 & 13.45$\pm$0.02\\
  2. 1.656208 & CIV & 6.9$\pm$0.5 & 13.54$\pm$0.03 \\
  3. 1.656389 & CIV & 12.1$\pm$0.4 & 13.83$\pm$0.01 \\
  4. .
  5. .
  6. .
  7. .
  8. 1.656879 & CIV & 17.0$\pm$0.4 & 13.75$\pm$0.01 \\

I have about 200 lines of them. As can be seen, these lines can only fill one column. So when one column is filled with them I need them not to go to the next page but start filling the right hand side of the page, some thing like this:

1.656389 CIV 12.1(0.4) 13.83 . . 1.656389 CIV 12.1(0.4) 13.83
1.656389 CIV 12.1(0.4) 13.83 . . 1.656389 CIV 12.1(0.4) 13.83
1.656389 CIV 12.1(0.4) 13.83 . . 1.656389 CIV 12.1(0.4) 13.83
1.656389 CIV 12.1(0.4) 13.83 . . 1.656389 CIV 12.1(0.4) 13.83

So if I removed some lines it could automatically adjust itself.

I would be grateful for any help on this.

With best regards,
Hassan

Hi msbstar,

Welcome to the LaTeX community.

As far as I know it is impossible for a table to break at columns in a twocolumn document. One could probably emulate a table with a list... maybe the {tabbing} environment works here (I have never used it so I'm not sure).

Regards
Clemens
