    I would like to request for your help. I have a table which is very big

    1. No. of columns are high
    2. The text in most cells are lengthy
    - For the above reasons I want the table in landscape. And the text should dynamically adjust so that the table does not cross the page.

    3. Number of rows are also high
    - For this reason the table should span through multiple page

    Please help me here. I can send the table in XL sheet if you please want to look at the requirement.

    • Thanks for your comment. What you are looking for is the longtable package. Here is a post on that topic with sample code. Please find a suitable post for your comment next time. You may use the search field on the right. Best, Tom.
